Southampton fans react to report Hasenhuttl is ready to hand Fraser Forster lifeline

According to a report in The Mirror, Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is ready to bring forgotten goalkeeper Fraser Forster in from the wilderness, and Saints fans have been quick to react on Twitter.

The 30-year-old was once the south coast outfit’s undoubted number-one choice between the sticks, but a prolonged dip in form saw him replaced by Alex McCarthy at the end of 2017, and he hasn’t played a match for them since despite his contract not due to expire until 2022.

While he sat on the substitutes’ bench as his fellow England international for the remainder of last season, he has been absent from the 18-man squad altogether this term following the arrival of Angus Gunn – who has started the previous two games under Hasenhuttl – from Manchester City during the summer.

Southampton supporters took to social media to give their thoughts on the story, and while one said “Jesus, please, no”, another said it “makes no sense at all”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
