Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is not happy with the recent performance of Ghanaian defender Mohammed Salisu.
The 22-year-old guardsman has been very poor in his last two games for the Saints as his erratic defending gifted opponent’s goals and his manager has urged him to get back to his old self as soon as possible.
“The Man City game was where they all praised him for being fantastic and it was his last really good game he played. It is always difficult for you as a manager to say what is going on in the background with him and all the things, all the rumors but I think this is a typical example of how quickly you can lose the focus and drop with your performances,” Hasenhuttl stated ahead of the game with Arsenal on Saturday.
“I think it’s on me – and you can be sure that I speak with him very often about that – to get his head clear because the last performances have been far away from what he has shown. He is a good package normally, we all know.”
“At the moment we are having the issue also with Ramadan and for these players it is not so easy. Some handle it better some don’t feel so energetic, but for me it is important that he gets back to the Sali he was before these last two or three games.” He added.
Southampton have conceded eleven goals in their last three games in all competitions scoring only once.
