Get up to date with all things Southampton with our Monday Briefing...

Djenepo wins Goal of the Month

Winger Moussa Djenepo has claimed September's Premier League Goal of the Month following a fan vote. 

The Malian was nominated for his stunning solo strike against Sheffield United in which he scored the only goal of the game. 

Djenepo fought off competition from Jetro Willems, Fikayo Tomori, Jeff Hendrick, James Maddison, Aaron Cresswell, Trent Alexander-Arnold and N’Golo Kanté to claim the award.

Premier League returns

After a fortnight’s break, the Premier League returns this weekend with Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side facing a trip to Wolves on Saturday (3pm BST).

Tickets for the trip to Molineux are now sold out, although supporters can follow the match via southamptonfc.com and the club's social media channels.

International duty continues

Four of Saints’ internationals are in action for their respective countries once again on Tuesday.

Maya Yoshida will look to help Japan continue their 100% start to World Cup qualification when they travel to Tajikistan, whilst Kevin Danso and Michael Obafemi have Euro Under-21 2021 qualifying matches for Austria and Republic of Ireland respectively.

Elsewhere, captain Pierre-Emile Højbjerg will be part of the Denmark squad to host Luxembourg in a friendly.

Saints’ international contingent will then head back to St Mary’s in the build-up to Saturday’s Premier League trip to Wolves.

Director of Football Operations departs

Southampton Football Club can confirm the departure of its Director of Football Operations, Ross Wilson, ahead of him taking up a role at Glasgow Rangers.

Wilson was appointed at Saints in 2015, initially as Director of Scouting and Recruitment before going on to oversee the club’s football operations, including its player trading, following a restructure in November 2018.

Supporters can read the full statement here.

Southampton FC Women hit eight

In Round Two of FA Cup qualifying action, Southampton FC Women produced a dominant performance to beat Buckland Athletic 8-0.

Having had to wait three weeks since their last outing, Marieanne Spacey-Cale’s team continued their impressive start to the campaign thanks to a Rachel Panting hat-trick, Georgie Freeland brace and further strikes from Sophia Pharoah, Shannon Albuery and Chloe Newton.

Saints will now progress to the third qualifying round due to take place on Sunday, October 27th.
