Ralph says Ings rumours hurt the team
Ralph says Ings rumours hurt the team. Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl admits the rumors surrounding Danny Ings have had a “devastating effect” on the team.
Ings’ situation remains unclear after the player entered the final year of his contract with Southampton. The 28-year-old has been linked with Manchester City and Tottenham hot spur and Manchester United.
“We need this player. We want him to continue playing for us,” Hasenhuttl told the BBC.
“But I think it doesn’t help with getting through last season with just one year left on the contract. This is what I think he should be aware of.
“Messages like he didn’t agree to our contract. He didn’t want to extend the contract. It didn’t help at all, with him and us. I don’t know who spread the news. It wasn’t from us definitely not.
“We don’t care about blaming the players or looking at him feeling bad here. Not interested in things that didn’t help the best work he could. It was his position and if so It would be a pity.”
