Southampton Coach Ralph Hasenhuttl, has stated, the short break between English Premier League seasons will be good news for the Saints.
Southampton have been in a good run of form lately with impressive results, despite having a shambolic performance and scoreline midway through the season, now the coach Ralph Hassenhutl has acclaimed his team will be happy for the shortbreak given ahead of the start of next season.
They have lost just one game in the last 8 since the restart of the 2019/20 Premier League. They can still go all the way to finishing 11th on the log by bettering Everton’s result on the last match day of the PL season.
Speaking with the Press.
“I must say that it was a very long season,” Hasenhuttl said ahead of Sunday’s game against Sheffield United at St Mary’s. “It was quite an interesting season with some strange moments and unbelievable turnarounds.
“It was like a rollercoaster but a short break is not so bad for us. We will take time off to recover and then the short pre-season is something that should suit us because we are a fit team and we don’t need long to be prepared for the fights.
“We showed after lockdown that we can be very quick on a very high level. If we keep this level and build on it then we must have a better start than last season.
“We had some really special and good games, whether that was the away win against Chelsea in the winter or the home win against Man City. But also the first half against Liverpool was maybe the best we have played, although we lost the game 4-0.
“I don’t really remember a lot of bad games, there were some, but it was much more consistent in the second half of the season. This must be the key for the future; more consistent, more wins at home and taking points consistently.
“The home record was not the best one, but I don’t want to separate home and away. I see the whole season and the moments where we were competitive and moments where we struggled, especially in September and October when it was a very tough time.
“It was a time where we learnt a lot about us, our commitment and we made the right decisions to turn it around.
The Saints recorded one of the most humiliating loss in the history of the English Premier League, when they were pumeled by, Brendan Rodgers led Leicester City side by 9-0.
The English Premier League season will reach it climax, on July 26th, Sunday.
