Friday October 26 was a humiliating day for Southampton following their home defeat to 2015 Premier League Champions, Leicester City.
The Saints Boss, Ralph Hasenhuttl, apologized calling it a disaster. The club is 18th on the premier league table and have just two league wins this season.
But the players and coaching staff seem to cope well with the aftermath by deciding to donate the day’s wages to charity.
“The group has decided that they wish to donate their wages from the day of the Leicester game to Saints Foundation, in order to help the vital work that is conducted by the charity,” Saints said in a statement.
Meanwhile, Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has praised them for being “incredible professionals” in the face of defeat.
“It’s not easy but they are incredible professionals. The manager will be sad for a moment – for one night – but after that they have to move forward,” he said.
“We know the team Leicester are; it was not easy.
“But it’s different competitions – the Carabao Cup and the Premier League. And we will try [to prepare] to face good teams.”
Manchester City will play against Southampton on Tuesday for the Carabao Cup.
“”I am not going to judge them on that or prepare to play against them based on what happened against Leicester,” Man City boss said.
“They will try to do their best.”
Southampton captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has assured the upcoming Tuesday match will be a chance for his team to make amends for their last disastrous match. For him, tough periods make tough people.
“We never want to be in this position again or anywhere near it.” He vowed.
