Southampton fans tip Redmond to impress

Once regarded as an excellent young talent, Nathan Redmond is now 24 years of age, and with his ability, should probably be pushing for a spot in the senior England team.

That is not the case as things stand though, and there is no getting away from the fact that he has only scored eight Premier League goals in 69 matches for Southampton.

The 5ft 8in tall Redmond did manage eight goals in all competitions for the Saints during the 2016-17 season, but only netted once for the English club last term, and faced criticism from his team’s supporters.

It is about time that the winger kicked on, and he was lively in Southampton’s goalless draw with Burnley in the opening weekend of the 2018-19 Premier League campaign.

The Southampton fans have been discussing Redmond on social media, and it seems that many are confident the 5ft 8in attacker will thrive under new head coach Mark Hughes this term.

Redmond will certainly be looking to improve on his goal tally this season, but there is little doubting that he has the ability to operate at this level of football.
