FPL bosses take note: Southampton star forced to depart international duty before Norwich

FPL bosses take note: Southampton star forced to depart international duty before Norwich

 

Premier League outfit Southampton have, on Sunday, been dealt an altogether concerning piece of news on the personnel front.

Saints on song

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men will of course be back in action this weekend.

On the back of the latest international break coming to a close, the Saints will make the trip to Carrow Road, for a Premier League meeting with Norwich City.

Southampton head into the clash keen to build on a fine spell of form of late, which has seen them climb a full six points clear of the relegation zone, owing to three wins and a draw from their last four outings.

Broja blow

As outlined above, though, with just six days to go before taking his side to east Anglia, Ralph Hasenhuttl has today seen his selection options dealt something of a hit.

This comes after striker Armando Broja was forced to depart international duty with Albania, owing to an ankle injury.

The 20-year-old, on loan from Chelsea, actually only returned to first-team duties with Southampton in their most recent outing, on the back of a two-week spell on the sidelines.

Evidently, though, his recovery period did not prove extensive enough, with Broja’s participation at Norwich, as a result, having been thrown firmly up in the air.
