Southampton great Lambert: Hasenhuttl has brought a buzz to the city

Southampton great Rickie Lambert is full of praise for manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.

The former striker went on the short trip to China to help boost the club's profile along with fellow icon Matt Le Tissier.

Lambert told the club's website: “What Ralph did last season, I think he rejuvenated the city really.

“For him to come in and turn it around and have his first pre-season, I think everyone is excited. I think Che [Adams] was a great signing. He looks very hungry to succeed in the Premier League.

“A few players, Danny Ings especially, with a full pre-season behind them so I'm excited to see the strike force.

“I'm really excited and I can feel the buzz amongst the city again.

“The city are behind Ralph, the players look like they are so it's going to be exciting."
