- Southampton went on top of the Premier League for the first time in 32 years
- The club were so excited they used the now infamous Donald Trump tweet Stop the count to mark their temporary feat
- Goals from Stuart Armstrong and Che Adams gave the Saints victory over Newcastle on Friday, November 6
Premier League surprise packages Southampton took to social media on Friday, November 6, to hilariously troll Donald Trump after briefly going top of the Premier League.
The Saints saw off a toothless Newcastle side by 2-0 on the night which they were expected to struggle with the absence of their star striker Danny Ings.
However, thanks to goals from Che Adams and Stuart Armstrong, Southampton moved top of the table with 16 points, level with Liverpool who play Manchester City on Sunday, November 8.
Typically, Southampton took to social media to update fans on the result and implications on the table and their admin decided to be a bit cheeky with his post.
Southampton shared the Premier League table with the caption “Stop the Count” on their Twitter account in reference to Donald Trump’s now infamous message amid vote counting in the US.
Trump tweeted the same words on Thursday evening after his competitor Joe Biden edged ahead in the vote count as he alleged some foul play in the vote counting exercise.
The cheeky message from Southampton’s page was the highlight of the day as hundreds of fans were tickled by the creativity of the club’s social media handler.
Others could not help but feel sorry for Trump whom they felt was at an all-time low in his political career if it got to a point where UK clubs were trolling him.
The outgoing President of the United States has been subject to mass banter online in recent days, with statistics showing he is highly likely to be floored by Joe Biden in the Presidential election.
On Thursday, former Arsenal star Gary Lineker hilariously suggested that Trump should join Monday Night Football show for punditry roles now that he was on the verge of being unemployed.
Away from banter and full marks should be awarded to Southampton who seem to be showing a lot of promise in the new campaign.
Slightly over a year since they lost 9-1 to Leicester City and Southampton, under manager Ralph Hasenhuttl believe anything is possible after going top.
The gaffer said:
"For us it's nice but it shouldn't kill the hunger for more. We should stay hungry and we should feel anything is possible with this team.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Donald Trump is taunted as the most controversial president the United States have ever had in recent times but the number one citizen of America still has his followers in the sporting world.
The votes in the US general elections are presently being counted and the next president between Trump and Joe Biden will be announced soon.
Many sports celebrities who have large followers have made their intentions known that the billionaire businessman should be voted out.
