Southampton fans react as Sofiane Boufal scores stunning goal for Celta Vigo

Out-on-loan Southampton man Sofiane Boufal scored a stunning solo goal for Celta Vigo during their 2-1 La Liga defeat to Sevilla on Sunday, and Saints fans were quick to react on Twitter.

Just hours after they had been convincingly beaten 3-0 by Chelsea at St Mary’s, the Morocco international made a big impact from the substitutes’ bench for the Spanish outfit, whom he joined on a temporary basis during the summer transfer window having fallen out of favour under Mark Hughes last term following a disagreement between the two.

Much like his brilliant strike against West Bromwich Albion last term, the 25-year-old picked the ball up in his own half, raced forwards beating plenty of opposition players before producing a fine curling finish.

Southampton supporters, 46% of whom who voted on our poll want Hughes to make an unthinkable change to his starting XI, took to social media to give their thoughts on the wonder-goal, and while one said “bring back Boufal now”, another said “I’d be more than happy to see him come back”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
