Saints Strikers Offer Different Options – Hughes

Southampton manager Mark Hughes has talked up his options in attack and feels they can all pose a different threat. A lack of goals left the Saints scrapping for their Premier League status in 2017-18, ending the campaign as the seventh lowest scorers.

Hughes, who took charge late last term, has drafted in Danny Ings on-loan from Liverpool to compete with the likes of Charlie Austin, Shane Long and Manolo Gabbiadini in the frontline.

The Welshman is hoping the extra competition will lead to further goals and insists he is delighted to have so many options to pick from.

“As a manager, you are adding to the capability of the team when you add a striker,” Hughes said.

“I like the fact that all my strikers have got different traits. That means individually they have different things they can bring to the party.

“With the options I have, I can pose different problems to different teams. The combinations I can put together are really interesting.”
