With Southampton getting back to winning ways on Saturday as we took victory over Leicester City, young fullback Yann Valery took a fair few headlines himself following his red card for two bookable offences.

The 19-year-old Frenchman was making his ninth senior appearance for the club in the game, and it was his seventh Premier League start since being promoted up from our youth ranks, but having picked up two yellows in the match, it seems most fans are looking at the positives in terms of his development and how he’ll learn from it.

Being reduced to ten men obviously made the second half trickier for us, but with the two goal cushion we held on for all three points anyway and I imagine taking the victory regardless did play into fans not overly being critical of him as it didn’t cost us.

The discipline side of the game he needs to quickly work on as regardless of whether fans feel it was a rush of blood or he took one for the team and forgot he was already on a yellow, with fans remembering the Cardiff match as well, we have to be careful it doesn’t cost us in the future.
