Southampton manager Hasenhuttl excited by Lavia potential

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl is excited about the potential of Romeo Lavia.

The 18-year-old midfielder, signed from Manchester City this summer, played 90 minutes in Saturday's 4-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur.

“There was a reason why he got the chance to start immediately," Hasenhuttl told the Daily Echo.

“It was not easy for the young lads but they have been brave and tried to compete. They are a strong side playing for the Champions League and for titles.

“You could see that they have strengthened up the team. Still, there are players like Richarlison who have not played so there is quality everywhere."
