Southampton manager Hasenhuttl laments 'unlucky' Leicester winner

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl was gutted after the FA Cup semi-final loss to Leicester City.

The Foxes won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Kelechi Iheanacho, setting up a final against Chelsea.

Speaking after the game, Hasenhuttl said: "We tried a lot and worked a lot against the ball. The performance was absolutely OK.

"We saw a tight game from both teams with both sides struggling to create chances. We had some moments and won the ball a lot of times in their half.

"We didn't ultimately make the final step or create the final chance so we ended up without a shot on target.

"Defensively, it was really good what we did today. The goal we conceded was unlucky. He managed to hit our player with his first shot. It's a pity when a goal like this decides a game.

"It was the only goal we conceded in our run this season but we have to come back and fight to win it next year. It was a nice experience playing in this beautiful ground and even with just a few fans, it was a nice feeling.

"We now have to concentrate on the remaining games of the season. If we put the same effort in against Tottenham on Wednesday then we have a chance of getting something."
