Southampton fans struggle to cope with ex-players thriving for Liverpool in Champions League

There has been an ongoing joke for some time about the relationship between Southampton and Liverpool.

Over the years, the Merseyside outfit have purchased a handful of Saints’ players.

Adam Lallana, Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren, Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk are among the pack that have vacated St Mary’s to move to Anfield.

Whenever a new player signs for the coastal club, it does not take long for football fans to joke that in a few years, said player will join Liverpool.

On Wednesday night, Southampton supporters witnessed three of their former players – Lovren, Van Dijk and Mane – put one foot into the semi-finals of the Champions League thanks to the Reds’ 3-0 win over Manchester City at Anfield.

The trio could be extended to a quartet if Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is included, as the midfielder developed his game with the Saints before joining Arsenal for a six-year spell.

Once it dawned on Southampton supporters that their former players could potentially go all the way in the Champions League, many took to Twitter.
