Managers Reaction

Leeds boss Jesse Marsch: “It was an intensive game with a lot of second balls and duels and one that we should have won. I feel like the clarity, tactically, what we want the game to look like, I thought we were balanced in the match and didn’t give much away. I did less shouting at the players during this match because they were more in control of every situation. Best counter-pressing game for us by far. Good in pressing moments. With the ball in build-up phases against a team that likes to press, we still find a lot of solutions.”

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl: “I can guarantee you it’s not the last he will score. He’s for sure one of the best in the world in this part of the game and for us a very important player. I don’t need to talk about [his other qualities]. You can talk about it. Tell the people it’s more than just set-pieces. It’s not a coincidence that he plays nearly every minute for us. He’s physically unbelievably strong, his recovery is super because three games in a week are not a problem for him. This is a player you need to have.”
