Southampton striker Danny Ings believes manager Ralph Hasenhuettl’s passion for the game has rubbed off on the players and said the Austrian’s emotional reaction to Monday’s 1-0 Premier League victory over Liverpool was great to see.
“You can see in the last few minutes, we’re still trying to break forward, still trying to defend with our lives. You see the young lads coming on, sprinting back, trying to get into position. It’s not easy to do.
“The manager’s got us all working our socks off. It’s really paying off this season.”
“I’d never taken a point against Juergen so far. They’re so strong and you always believe something can happen. The way we defended was amazing, it was absolutely the perfect evening for us,” Hasenhuettl said.
“We’ve had a few other good wins but today nobody expected to win against such a team.”
“If we would have more time, we would probably be friends, but we live far away from each other. I respect a lot his work. It was a great setup tonight,” Klopp added.
