Southampton fans react to club video of players training on St Mary’s pitch

Southampton Football Club posted a video of their players training on the St Mary’s pitch via their official Twitter account ahead of their crucial clash against Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Saturday, and Saints fans were quick to react.

The match against the Magpies looks to be must-win for the south coast outfit if they are to survive this season, after they could only pick up a goalless draw against another fellow struggler in Stoke City at home last weekend – a result which did little to help the ill feeling towards manager Mauricio Pellegrino from the St Mary’s faithful.

Pellegrino’s men, who have some tough looking fixtures on the horizon, lie just one place and one point above the relegation zone ahead of the long trip north, where they face a Toon side that are one place and one point above them.

Southampton supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the video showing the players and Pellegrino in training, and while one simply said “unbelievable”, another asked “why oh why is he still here?”

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
