Red-hot Redmond helps Saints subdue Wolves

Red-hot Redmond helps Saints subdue Wolves

Ralph Hasenhuttl believes he has built a "special relationship" with Nathan Redmond to coax the best out of the Southampton forward.

"We have a special relationship". It is a very positive thing for him and helps us a lot.

"After the equaliser, it was good that we had the switch in our game again because we knew exactly that it was not enough to wait". "For me, it is unbelievable that he was very much criticised last season in this stadium".

Hasenhuttl was quick however to warn his squad that there will be no easing off until safety is ensured.

"We have breakfast together, train together, eat lunch together, eat dinner together".

"The pressure lifts when you win, and then you can celebrate with the fans". The game was there for us, but we conceded in a way we can not concede.

Still reeling from Sunday's 3-2 FA Cup semi-final defeat by Watford when they threw away a two-goal lead at Wembley, Wolves put in a turgid performance, creating precious little up front even with 70 percent of the possession. "Congratulations to them as they were better than us".

Nuno interrupted and said: "Sorry?"

Wolves will now head to Marbella for some warm-weather training, with Nuno insisting his men had not suffered at Saints due to any FA Cup hangover.

"We need to regroup, analyse, look at the game and react for the next one".

"We want to finish as high as we can in the league and the next game is always more important and that is Southampton - tough challenge".

"Today Southampton were better than us in nearly every situation".
