Ralph Hasenhüttl reiterated the importance of the Southampton Academy after the 3-1 victory over Huddersfield Town in the Premier League.

Michael Obafemi came off the bench to become the club’s youngest ever Premier League goalscorer aged 18 years and 169 days, a record previously held by Dexter Blackstock (18 years, 177 days) when he scored against Portsmouth in November 2004.

There was also another start for Yan Valery and a place in a Premier League squad for young full-back Kayne Ramsay for the first time.

“We have a few young players now who are developing in the team and that’s what I think the philosophy of this club is about,” Hasenhüttl reflected.

“I give them the trust and the self-confidence that they can show me what quality they have and I’m very happy that Matt Targett, Yan Valery, Michael Obafemi and young Kayne Ramsay was also on the bench.

“I’m happy with these guys because they are our future and we should try to build them up and to develop them. That’s what we do.”
