Southampton fans react to Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg tweet

Loads of Southampton fans have reacted on Twitter after Saints captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg posted a video on his Twitter account of the tune to ‘Oh When The Saints Go Marching In’ being played on a mobile phone keypad, along with the caption: “Think I’m missing football…..”.

It was a brilliant touch by the Denmark international in what is a tough time for everyone across the United Kingdom right now in the current circumstances, as well as providing a bit of light relief for the St Mary’s faithful.

Of course, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men currently lie seven points above the Premier League relegation zone as we await the news of if and when the top-flight campaign will resume, with Hojbjerg generally being one of the more consistent performers.

Perhaps more pressing right now is his contract situation however, with just over 12 months remaining on his deal with the south coast outfit.

While some supporters simply praised Hojbjerg for his tweet, as you can see below others reminded him about penning that new deal.

Here is just a selection of the reaction…
