Southampton fans release bizarrely catchy song for their Europa League campaign

Ronald Koeman

Can't really decide if this is amazing or horrendous.

There is plenty for Southampton fans to get excited about this season - Ronald Koeman has invested wisely again, Jay Rodriguez is back and they are in the Europa League! Time to celebrate if you are a Saints fan, right? Well, yeah, or you could just create a song showing just how excited you are about those Thursday night trips to Georgia or Estonia!

And that's exactly what 'The Red Stripez' have done and it's weirdly catchy and borderline Eurovision gold, with it's early 90s dance beat and donks. With inspired lyrics like 'Fonte at the back, Jay-Rod coming back' and 'Koeman takes us higher!' how can you not love it, unless you are a Portsmouth fan...

Southampton kick-off their Europa League campaign tonight against Dutch side and Chelsea's dumping ground, Vitesse Arnhem, in the first-leg of the third round of qualifying for the gruelling tournament which doesn't finish until May next year.

So how will Southampton get on in Europe? Well, if you believe this song, they might be alright – especially with Fonte at the back and Jay-Rod coming back!
