Following the Saints’ 4-0 win over Portsmouth this week in the League Cup, fan have been on a rush not experience in some, and a video released on the club’s official Twitter account sees the players enjoying themselves in training ahead of Saturday’s clash with Tottenham.
The short clip sees Sofiane Boufal nutmeg defensive teammate Maya Yoshida in an entertaining video, with supporters on social media thoroughly enjoying the skills on show from the 26-year-old winger.

Some fans, though, jokingly think that Boufal disrespected Yoshida too much, with the Japanese international being part of the Southampton furniture since 2012…
