Ralph Hasenhuttl raves about Armando Broja



Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has praised Armando Broja who is currently on loan at Saint Mary’s from Chelsea.

The 20-year-old has been spectacular for the Saints this season.

He has already scored four goals in six Premier League starts for the Hampshire side.

The talented striker remained on loan at Vitesse last season, where he scored 10 goals in 30 Eredivisie appearances.

Given his incredible performances at such a young age, the Albanian international is expected to make his debut in the Blues first team in the future.

Broja has already impressed Austrian boss Ralph Hasenhuttl who praised the 20-year-old during his pre-match press conference.

The 54-year-old recalled the forward’s contribution during September’s clash against West Ham, who will be his opponent on Sunday.

He said (according to football.london): “I remember when it happened that he had a few good chances in this game.”

“He is good as a substitute and he has also shown in the past that he can start,” continued the Austrian boss.

“He scored four goals after starting so well, a good average to be honest. He took a chance because of Che [Adams] injury. He was there and he did everything to help her try her luck again.

“That’s what you have to do as a young player.”

Southampton drew 2-2 at Crystal Palace in their last Premier League game.

The Saints were looking to end a six-game winless streak at Selhurst Park and put themselves in good position by knocking twice against James Ward-Prowse and Armando Broja after falling behind early.

However, they had to settle for a single point in the end as Jordan Ayew scored the equalizer in the 65th minute of the game.

Southampton are currently 15th in the Premier League table, having obtained 17 points from 17 appearances.
