Wesley Hoedt Joins Lazio On Loan
Monday, 5th Oct 2020 21:09

Saints have confirmed that Wesley Hoedt has joined the club he left to come to St Mary's, Italian side Lazio.

Saints have confirmed that Wesley Hoedt will join Lazio on a season long loan with an option to buy at the end of the loan period.

The 26-year-old centre-back moved to Saints from the Italian club in 2017, and has since made 45 appearances in his time at St Mary’s.

Hoedt, who has previously spent time on loan at Celta Vigo and Royal Antwerp, will now head back to Serie A for the remainder of the 2020/21 and will hope to help Lazio repeat their success of the last campaign, when they finished fourth.

Of all the players shipped out on loan, I do think that Hoedt could have improved our side if Ralph Hasenhuttl had given him a chance, however from the Austrian's arrival at the club he had decided that the Dutch defenders face didn't fit and he did not play a game under Hasenhuttl.

Don’t let it be said that you weren’t loyal to Hoedt to the very end.

I’ll stick with Ralph’s view.

Im not loyal to Hoedt, of all the three that have left today I think he made the biggest contribution, I stick with Ralph's view too, but it might have been different, Hoedt was frozen out without playing a game for Ralph, unlike Boufal who had plenty of chances here.

Good luck to all three of them who have gone today

I don’t doubt that of the 3 that have left tonight Wesley made the biggest contribution it’s just that is a pretty low bar!

A CB that was afraid to head had potentially the greatest contribution to make in a side that supposedly needs a rock solid leader. Lol.

I'm hoping that the apparent option to buy is sufficiently low to tempt Lazio into a deal as soon as possible. If his football brain had equalled his ego and arrogance he could have been quite a decent player.

Lots of discussion this week on football forums, including here, on two subjects – the petition to lobby parliament to allow limited numbers of supporters back into football grounds, and of course the return of that old chestnut from Man City Chief Executive Ferran Soriano, introducing Premier League ‘B’ teams into the EFL. First off, I don’t mind admitting I’ve signed the petition ( https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/552036 ), as have 192,779 others at the time of writing, though I don’t actually think it’ll make any difference. I can completely understand why some do not think this is a good idea, as second-wave spikes of coronavirus infection pop up all over the country (mainly because – let’s face it – some people are dicks and can’t be trusted to sit the right way on a toilet). But to me, the two go hand in hand (not dicks and toilets) – whilst football clubs throughout the country struggle financially without spectators, we are always going to be under threat of this sort of ‘B’ team nonsense as a condition of financial support from the Premier League fat cats. They got their way in 2016 with the EFL trophy, who’s to say they won’t again when the financial squeeze really starts to tighten its grip without paying customers through the turnstiles? Robbie has featured prominently in this debate in recent weeks, and looks like he will again on Sky tomorrow if this tweet from Sophy Ridge is anything to go by -
