Glenn Hoddle has taken to social media to praise Charlie Austin after the striker handed Southampton a 1-0 victory at Manchester United on his debut for the club.

Austin came off the bench in the 79th minute to head home the winner three minutes from full time to hand the visitors the three points and heap further misery on United boss Van Gaal.

The result means that United have now only won two of their last 10 Premier League games and is sure to continue the uncertainty about Van Gaal’s future at the club.

However, former Tottenham boss Hoddle appeared to be delighted to see Austin net the winner and says that Southampton’s signing of the forward is the deal of the season.

Hoddle tweeted after the final whistle:
