Danny Ings set for a longer spell on the sidelines

Danny Ings set for a longer spell on the sidelines

Southampton has received a blow in their team with manager Ralph Hasenhuttl admitting that star striker Danny Ings might be out for a longer period.

Ings was withdrawn in the 13th minute in Saints clash with Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday in what his manager said was a muscle injury and speaking after the match, the boss admitted that the set back to the English striker didn’t look good.

"I think it was again a muscle problem, but it doesn't look good to be honest. I don't know when we will have him. Muscle injuries we are normally waiting for a minimum of four weeks I think, so we will have a look.

"It's a little bit fitting to the history we've had in these past weeks. It's horrible this season, we have so many problems and as soon as players are coming back others are injured again.

"We lost Ori and now we lose Ings again and these are all very important players for us, but even more important is that a player like Nathan Tella did a good job today. He was very strong and that gives me hope for the future," the manager said.
