Southampton fans react as Ralph Hasenhuttl targets a centre-back & a right-back

Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to react after it was reported by The Mirror (print version, November 12, page 53) that Ralph Hasenhuttl has prioritised signing a ‘top quality’ centre-back and a new right-back in the January transfer window.

Given all of the Saints’ problems right now, the backline is perhaps the best place for the former RB Leipzig boss to focus his attention on.

Southampton have conceded the most goals in the Premier League this season with 29 in 12 games, and Hasenhuttl has used a staggering ten different defensive variations in those 12 matches – the Austrian simply must find a settled backline soon.

To make matters worse, Cedric Soares – one of two Southampton right-backs – recently gave an interview revealing his intentions to leave St Mary’s at the end of the current campaign. If there wasn’t already a pressing need for a new right-back, then there most certainly is now.
