Nathan Redmond highlighted the importance of the role played by Southampton’s supporters during the narrow defeat to Manchester United in the EFL Cup final.

Redmond felt that the fans played an integral part in Saints’ efforts, and added his gratitude for keeping not just the team, but the whole dressing room going during the game.

“The fans were fantastic,” he said.

“We couldn’t ask for a better set of fans and I just want to say thank you to them on behalf of the players and everyone else inside that dressing room – they got us through it today, throughout the competition, and I’m sure they’ll help us through to the end of the season as well.”

Saints went close to winning it in the second half, going close right up to the end of the 90 minutes, and Redmond was disappointed not to reward them.

“I want to say thank you to the fans,” he said.

“We really appreciate the support they gave us.”
