Hoedt: Southampton boss Hasenhuttl blanked me

Wesley Hoedt has revealed how he was frozen out by Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.

He is currently on loan at Royal Antwerp.

The defender told Sport/Foot Magazine: “I'm still under contract [at Southampton], so I don't want to say anything bad but, since the start, he told me I wouldn't play.

“I asked him many times why, but I never got an answer. This season, I was the best in nearly every test.

“He told me he wanted to give me a second chance, but I was never given one to begin with.

“I trained hard for six weeks, but nothing. After a talk, I decided to prove my worth elsewhere."
