What Southampton Manager Said After Manchester United 9-0 Victory

Southampton FC suffers a second big humiliation under its current boss Ralph Hassenhutti in the Premier League.

Manchester United played a major role against the saint at Old Trafford, as they ensured that Hassenhutti sided with nine goals. The red devil's return to victory with a massive win on Old Trafford, closing the gap between Man City at the table in the league.

Alexandre Jankewitz, a Southampton young man, received his first red card at his saints debut, leaving Hassenhutti's army with 10 men at Stretford End in the first two minutes of the game. Manchester United did not waste time capitalizing on its chances on the ten-man Southampton side, who were fighting against the pace of the dangerous attackers in United States.

After converting from the crossing of Luke Shaw, Aaron wan-bissaka gave United the lead in 18 minutes to 1-0. Marcus Rashford added one in just 7 minutes to make it 2-0 in 25 minutes.

Bednarek J's own goal and Edinson Cavani made Manchester United finish the first half with a comfortable 4-0 lead. Five other goals sank Southampton in the second half, falling to another 9-0 loss under Ralph Hassenhutti.

Ralph Hassenhutti now loses 9-0 twice as the only leading league manager in history. In 2019, the city of Leicester beat Southampton 9-0 and now in 2021 Manchester United repeated the same score against the saints.

After the loss of 9-0 in Southampton to Manchester United, Ralph Hassenhutti told BBC Sport: "Following this opponent for three minutes, one man, Man United, has worked us off and has not stopped scoring," says Hassenhutti.

Southampton received two red cards, one in the first half and the other in the second half, against Manchester United. Bruno Fernandes scored a spot kick after Bednarek J was filled with Anthony Martial in 86 minutes. The referee sent Bednarek off. 

Hassenhutti continued: "We have no more players, the second red card is very disappointing. I don't want to kill him, but I don't want to talk about the arbitrator.

"He was our VAR last week and made his mark in the game. It was a dumb foul from [Jankewitz] the young lad and kills it all. 

"I wanted to give a few young guys a chance to show up when you come with two goalkeepers on a bench."

"It's better to take it out when I see what's going on because 9-0 at the debut doesn't have a good score to play," Hassenhutti said of Jankewitz' red card at his Southampton debut. 

"In the second half, we tried to keep a clean sheet as much as we could, but it was too easy for them to score at nine men. What can I say? What can I say? It's awful, but after 9-0 we got up and we have to do that again. 

"I said we don't need it again at the time, but you have to take it again. He told BT Sport that it was devastating: "It was hard when you lost one player against such a team three minutes later. It's hard to compete here, eleven against eleven.

"It's even harder with one man down and all of the players we're missing at the moment. To grant again nine goals, we now have your story and I can take the blame. 

"I don't know what [Jankewitz] I can say to him. They were helpless to defend the guys on the pitch when he was sent off straight away. Then it went very fast. 

"You know the 90 minutes can be quite long, but nobody's going to talk about the only player that was sent off or the second player sent off. The result is there and the result must be relived. We gotta bounce back. So far we have been playing a very good season. Nobody expected such a result today. It didn't have any signs. 

"It doesn't reflect what we've done so far this season. It's difficult to explain what's happening in your mind now. We must live with that," concluded Hassenhutti.
