Former Real Madrid coach, Fabio Capello, has criticized Ralph Hasenhutll for breaking down in tears after the 1-0 victory over Liverpool.
Southampton were 1-0 winners over Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool courtesy of a second minute goal from Danny Ings and a spirited defensive display to deny the defending champions a win or a draw.
At the hearing of full time blast, the Austrian gaffer fell to his knees and began to cry after he saw his side sit four points off the top of the Premier League table.
Fabio Capello in his statement to Sky Sports didn’t seem impressed with Hasenhuttl breaking down in tears.
‘I don’t understand this sort of thing,’ former Juventus, Roma, Milan and England boss Capello told Sky Sport Italia.
‘He was working, a bit of emotion is fine in these situations, but this was completely over the top.
‘Why on earth would you start crying?!
Hasenhuttl had so much to say at the post March conference with him talking about how bad his records against Klopp.
He told Sky after the game: ‘I’ve never taken points against Jurgen. I started to believe we could to do and they were so strong up front. You could believe that something could happen.
‘The way we defended today was amazing. The effort the guys put in was the key of winning. The mentality was even better. The perfect day for us, the perfect evening for us and an important step forward I think.’
Jurgen Klopp had to console Hasenhuttl and then praised the Austrian and his boys for their solid defensive display.
Klopp claimed: ‘They threw everything – the attitude of Southampton was exceptional. That’s why we lost tonight and didn’t have the result in last few weeks. It’s up to us to change that.
