Southampton fans split over Wesley Hoedt

Wesley Hoedt has played every minute of Southampton’s 2018-19 Premier League campaign.

The 24-year-old moved to Southampton from Lazio in the summer of 2017, and signed a five-year contract with the English club upon his arrival.

Hoedt has helped Southampton keep clean sheets in their last two Premier League games against Bournemouth and Newcastle United.

And the club’s official Twitter account has posted an interview with the Dutchman, who has discussed his relationship with Jack Stephens.

There were Southampton fans who took the chance to pay tribute to the 6ft 2in centre-back, but others are still not convinced when it comes to the former AZ youngster.

Southampton have not actually won a Premier League match since the start of September, drawing three and losing three of their six fixtures since then.

A total of seven points from 10 matches has left Mark Hughes’ team in 16th position in the Premier League table, and they now face a trip to Manchester City on Sunday afternoon, which is not exactly ideal.
