Moussa Djenepo struck the right note for Saints with his stunning first goal for the club – but Ralph Hasenhuttl admitted his new signing’s scoring is thankfully better than his singing.
The £14m man had to stand up and sing for teammates as part of the traditional team induction ceremony the night before Saints secured their first win of the season at Brighton with Djenepo netting 78 seconds after coming on as a second half sub.
Hasenhuttl said Djenepo was so bad that he still has no idea what song he was singing but was delighted he was in tune with his teammates on the pitch.
Ralph Hasenhuttl was delighted to see Saints secure a first win of the season but admitted that his team must be much better in the future.
Saints got over the line against Brighton at the Amex Stadium thanks to a Moussa Djenepo stunner less than two minutes after the £14m signing came off the bench and an injury time strike from Nathan Redmond.
The Saints headed into game-week three down in 19th spot in the Premier League table, and had yet to register a single point in the league.
But it was far from a convincing performance against a Seagulls side who played for an hour with ten men after the sending off of Florin Andone.
