Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has identified the areas where teenage whizz-kid Tino Livramento can improve, suggesting: “Especially his passing and maybe the final pass.” Asked about Livramento’s qualities,
Ralph Hasenhuttl replied: “Physically he has a very good package, he’s tall, he’s quick he has a lot of speed and this combination is perfect for this position, to be honest, he’s very good defensively 1v1, and also offensively. There are still some things to improve, especially his passing and maybe the final pass but he has the quality to do this and this is fantastic, and he is a very good player to work with.”
Ex-Chelsea 18-year-old Livramento has started every Premier League game of the campaign so far under Hasenhuttl, after impressing enough in just 45 minutes of a pre-season friendly against Athletic Bilbao to usurp Kyle Walker-Peters. Costing the club just a reported £5million to acquire from Cobham, it’s a superb bit of business and no doubt will be something of a money spinner in future if his development continues at this pace. It’s easy to see why the youngster was awarded with the Chelsea academy player of the year award, previously won by the likes of Champions League winners Mason Mount and Reece James.
After spending over a decade at Chelsea, Livramento returned and made his first appearance at Stamford Bridge with Saints before the international break. Since then, he’s been playing with Lee Carsley’s England under-21 side, having received his first cap at the level in September.
