SOUTHAMPTON fans aimed chants of “you’re getting sacked in the morning” at boss Ralph Hasenhuttl – despite LEADING against Bournemouth.
The under-fire Saints manager guided his side to a precious 1-0 away win over the Cherries on Wednesday.
But a section of the travelling fans appeared to turn their backs on Austrian gaffer Hasenhuttl.
They aimed chants of “you’re getting sacked in the morning” at their own boss despite Che Adams giving them the lead in just the ninth minute of the game.
There were also cries of “you don’t know what you’re doing” when Joe Aribo was hooked with 25 minutes still left to play.
Hasenhuttl replaced Aribo with Lyanco, which turned out to be a justified decision as his side held on for three points.
The Southampton boss then celebrated wildly with the away fans at full-time, as all appeared to be forgotten.
And the 55-year-old revealed after the game that he did not understand what the fans were chanting at him during the match.
When quizzed on the matter, he said: “The good thing when you are not a native speaker is that you don’t understand these things.
“It is not interesting for me because I know the players are ready to fight for the team.”
Hasenhuttl appears to still be under pressure despite the result, having lost six out of 11 Premier League games this season.
He was appointed Southampton boss in December 2018, with some fans believing now is the time for a change of gaffers.
Victory over Bournemouth saw the Saints climb out of the bottom three, but table topping Arsenal are next on the agenda.
Defeat at the weekend could inch him closer to the sack, especially given reports earlier this month suggested he was on the brink of the axe.
