#PLStories- Ralph Hasenhuttl wants calm atmosphere for Tino Livramento #SAINTSFC

RALPH Hasenhuttl has called for a “calm atmosphere to be able to develop” Tino Livramento’s game, following his nomination for Premier League Player of the Month.

The 18-year-old right-back is up for the October award after a stellar month that saw his first ever senior goal during the 2-2 draw with Burnley, as well as clean sheets against Leeds and Watford.

The former Chelsea youngster has smashed all expectations out of the water to immediately come in and usurp Kyle Walker-Peters in his favoured position, pushing the top performer out to the left.

It’s easy to forget that he has still only played 10 senior league games in his entire career, albeit that being every Premier League match of the season so far.

Speaking ahead of the visit of Aston Villa, the Austrian boss said: “I try to bring every player in the best possible position for him so he gives us his biggest qualities, and his strength as good as possible for this team.

“Tino has showed that in the right-back position he has a fantastic impact for the team, he has space to attack, enough room to use his pace.

“Defensively, quality in the back four which you also need to have, physically absolutely the quality to run up and down for 90 minutes, his running stats for the last games were very high – the same for Kyle Walker-Peters on the other side.

“He does a good job which makes us very flexible defensively and offensively. It’s not a surprise to me that he has made such an impact in this team.”

He goes on to explain: “I want to calm the situation a little bit down as in the moments it is better for the young players. We want to give him a good, calm atmosphere to be able to develop his game.

“(I’m) not so happy about selecting him for Player of the Month or whatever, but this is what it is when you play good, what can you do.

“Finally, he is handling it well I think, he is a very grown up 18-year-old, it’s unbelievable at that age to be that serious for his game and his work on the pitch. We have a good young group here with a good drive, working hard and this is enjoyable to work with for me as a manager.”
