“He is hard to stop” – Southampton boss Hasenhuttl praises Joe Aribo

Southampton coach Ralph Hasenhuttl has praised Joe Aribo after he scored his first goal for the Premier League club in a 2-1 pre-season friendly defeat against Villarreal on Saturday.

Southampton were trailing Villlareal 1-0 before Nigeria’s Aribo scored a goal of utter wonder to make it 1-1 and mark his arrival to the Premier League.

Aribo took the ball in his own half and launched a solo run, before unleashing a superb strike past former Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina.

“When he is running with the ball he is hard to stop,” Hasenhuttl told the club’s official website after the game in reference to Aribo’s goal, adding:

“He was a little bit lucky also, but he always has these situations when the ball is under his feet and he finds good solutions.”

The Nigerian midfielder expressed delight with scoring in front of home fans and says he hopes to maintain the momentum going jnto the new season.

“I was laughing with the boys inside. I said I didn’t even know where I pulled that chop on the right foot out from, but it was a really good feeling to score at home and hopefully, I can take that into games to come and help the boys this season,” Aribo told the same portal.

“It’s really important [to have scored] and hopefully I can take that momentum into the games to come.”
