Southampton fans react to Carrillo exit

Southampton announced over the weekend that Guido Carrillo had joined La Liga outfit Leganes on loan for the 2018-19 campaign.

Carrillo only moved to Southampton from Monaco in January, with the Saints paying £19m to secure the services of the centre-forward.

The 27-year-old failed to score in his 10 appearances for his English club in the second half of the season, however, and was left out of Southampton’s squad for their pre-season tour of China.

Carrillo’s move to Leganes was confirmed on Sunday, and the Argentine will be reunited with former Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino, who accepted the Leganes job last month.

The Saints supporters have been reacting to the loan exit on social media, and it would be fair to say that they are struggling to agree when it comes to the move.

Indeed, there are those who feel that Carrillo was not given enough of a chance, but there are also plenty quite happy to see the striker leave St Mary’s.
