Ralph Hasenhuttl has said that he is proud of the Southampton side after winning against Arsenal.
The Austrian gaffer clinched the first win of his Premier League career in his very first match at the St Mary’s Stadium.
Southampton’s new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has said that he is proud of his team after they clinched a famous win over Arsenal. The Saints went ahead twice in the match but the visitors came back on level terms twice as well before Charlie Austin headed home from close range to get the winning goal in the dying minutes of the match to clinch only their second win of the season so far.
The former RB Leipzig gaffer said in the post-match interview, “Absolutely proud. I’m enjoying every moment today, it was fantastic game we played and the crowd was amazing,” he added, “The moment when we scored to make it 3-2 was unbelievable and I thought the roof was going to go away from the stadium! I think we deserved to win today. We invested so much and had very good commitment against the ball and a lot of chances, more than Arsenal I think in the game.”
Speaking about the atmosphere in the stadium, the manager said, “You could feel that the kind of football we want to play, they appreciated it and felt that the team were doing everything to make a win happen. I think they are going home today and have hope that we can get out of this situation we have been in during recent weeks. It’s a first step, a big first step but no more. We have to improve and we will do. Next week we will start again to focus on our work, our habits and automatism. When we face Huddersfield next weekend it will be another tough game but we’re looking forward to it.”
