Southampton p̶l̶a̶y̶m̶a̶k̶e̶r̶ midfielder Dusan Tadic says he and his teammates should be “ashamed” at the club’s relegation struggles in the Premier League this season.
Following Saints’ shocking 3-0 defeat at West Ham United on Saturday, Mark Hughes’ side find themselves third from bottom in the relegation zone, two points away from safety.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Serbian Tadic said: “We should be ashamed that we are in this kind of situation. We still have seven games to go and we need to try to get out of this situation, it doesn’t matter how, we need to do something.
“The first thing is we need to fight together and try to win matches, this is most important. It doesn’t matter how, we need to find solutions to win games.”
As the season draws to its close, things are starting to look increasingly desperate for the Saints.
However, Tadic feels things are improving under Hughes’ management.
“I think he (Hughes) has had a big impact, you can see on the training pitch that we are better.
”We put more energy into our training sessions and the environment is also better and because of that I was very mad that we let the game go against West Ham because we were in a good way.
”We just need to keep training as well as possible because we have very good coaches and training sessions and we need to get benefits from that.”
Next up for Saints is a tough trip away at Arsenal. Here’s hoping Hughes’ work on the training pitch culminates in a positive result for Southampton.
