There are a couple of surprises in the list of Southampton’s top earners, according to Capology data.
The 2019/20 season has been one of recovery for Southampton following a wretched start to their Premier League campaign.
The Saints poor opening to the year culminated in a humiliating 9-0 defeat to Leicester City at St Mary’s towards the end of October.
However, the club decided to stick with head coach Ralph Hassenhuttl and their faith has been rewarded, with the Austrian overseeing an impressive recovery at the club.
Now, with nine matches to play they have a seven-point gap to the relegation zone and sit in 14th position, although their run-in includes meetings with Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United and Sheffield United.
The season has been suspended until April 30 at the earliest though, while it is not yet known how the FA will decide to complete the season.
With the Saints sitting safely in 14th they are not at immediate risk of relegation, but fans of the club will surely want to see the season completed.
Therefore, with no football set to be played for the foreseeable future, we have looked at the five highest-paid players at St Mary’s.
