Southampton midfielder Aribo: We're all behind Hasenhuttl

Southampton star Joe Aribo insisted “we're all united" when it comes to their following of the manager Ralph Hasenhuttl's orders.

The Nigeria international was on target for the Saints against Everton in the Premier League.

However, his goal came in vain, as Southampton lost the game 2-1, which was their third straight loss in the league.

“We're all united, we're all together. We know how important it is to get out of this run we're going through," he told the Daily Echo.

“The boys are working hard daily, we just need to take onboard the manager's points to see what he needs to get results in the next few games."

Aribo added: “You can take positives from it, in football you're going to have games where you have positives and negatives also.

“We're creating chances and that's a good thing, we just need to find the back of the net and be a bit more focussed together defensively as a unit.

“It's definitely frustrating. I wouldn't say we are worried because games are coming thick and fast.

“As long as we get results and performances in the next games we will look back at this as just a blip in our season. We can't dwell on it too much. It's so important we get going together, as a team and as a unit, to get results."
