Højbjerg thanks Saints fans

By SFC Media time Mon 03 Oct Leicester vs Saints

Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Højbjerg has issued a message of thanks to the club's fans.

The midfielder has been extremely impressed by the backing the team receives from its supporters and was moved to speak about them after Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Leicester City.

"It’s not a coincidence that you can hear them,” he said.

"We were in the stadium of the champions from last year. Last week we were in West Ham, a big stadium with 60,000, and the fans you could hear were the ones from Southampton.

"This support helps us being on and being ready for the games and helps us get through really tough moments.

"It’s fantastic, they’re doing fantastic, they’re helping the team and all together, the whole club, I hope we will achieve something good this season."
