Oscar Wilde once said “Life imitates art far more than art imitates life”, and in the world of football and for Southampton this season, Sofiane Boufal’s story is a testament to that famous quote.

The 26-year-old winger has enjoyed a renaissance year so far with Southampton, proving his worth to Ralph Hasenhuttl after a year away on-loan with Celta Vigo and slowly becoming one of the club’s most important players, with Boufal registering two assists as numbers from Transfermarkt show.
And in a recent interview with the club’s official website, Boufal has opened up about his comeback to the top for the Saints in a revealing piece, and supporters on social media lapped it up, praising their attacking ace and egging the attacker on to carry on his good form this season for the south coast side.
Here’ what some Southampton fans had to say towards Boufal’s revealing interview…
Our best player.

The fact that no French team put in an acceptable bid during Summer 2019, and RH is short on options, “revived” his PL career

Boufal’s impact on the pitch has been impressive, although the Moroccan international has not managed to help Southampton climb higher in the Premier League table, with Southampton currently sitting in 17th place.
