Che Adams taunts Sheffield Wednesday with his goal celebration and post-match interview

Che Adams taunts Sheffield Wednesday with his goal celebration and post-match interview as a late winner hands Southampton all three points.

New Saints boss Russell Martin started with James Ward-Prowse as captain and got off to a dream start in the Championship as Adam Armstrong put them ahead eight minutes in.

Sheffield Wednesday, who now have Xisco Munoz at the helm after the departure of Darren Moore earlier this summer, hit back after the break through Lee Gregory.

Adams however then came off the bench to score the winner for Southampton in the 87th minute, before nine minutes were added on at the 90, as per rule changes to tackle time wasting and increase the amount of time a ball is in play for.

Sheffield Wednesday: Dawson, Paterson, Iorfa, Ihiekwe, Famewo, Vaulks (Palmer 77), Bakinson, Delgado (Fletcher 77), Bannan, Windass (James 86), Gregory (Musaba 68).

Subs not used: Wilks, Valentin, Bernard, Smith, Charles.

Goals: Gregory 54.

Yellow cards: Gregory 28, Paterson 30, Delgado 45, Dawson 78.

Saints: Bazunu, Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Stephens, Manning, Ward-Prowse, Smallbone, Alcaraz (S. Armstrong 73), Tella, A. Armstrong (Adams 79), Edozie (Aribo 89).

Subs not used: McCarthy, Lyanco, Charles, Lavia, Djenepo, Amo-Ameyaw.

Goals: A. Armstrong 8, Adams 87.

Yellow cards: A. Armstrong 28, Manning 37, Tella 64, Stephens 84.

Sheffield Wednesday’s Xisco Munoz:

“The performance of the team was perfect. I think it’s what we want; we know exactly where we are.

“We need to improve in some situations, but I think we had our chances.

“We gave some chances; the first goal was a brilliant goal and the second goal was perfect also.

“Right now, after five weeks working together, it’s impossible to take the ball off them [Southampton]. Sometimes you can, sometimes you can’t.

“We know, right now, we don’t have the capacity for taking the ball and we have more time on the ball. I think we need more time.

“They need to know more about me, I need to know more about them and secondly, we need to sign some more players. The most important thing is we are in a good place.”

Southampton’s Russell Martin:

“I’m really proud of the players. After five weeks’ work, to come here, to where they were so good last season, albeit in a different division, was not an easy start for us.

“We’ve had a lot going on, a lot of noise around the place, which we can’t really control, and the way the players have handled it and with what they’ve shown on the pitch tonight, I’m so proud.

“That was, for the first game, a big test for them. The courage they showed and the pride in what they were doing, especially towards the end of the game, the way they managed the game was incredible.

“I’m really grateful for that and I’m really pleased we could win for the amount of supporters we had come in tonight.

“We have so much to work on still and so much improvement to make, but hopefully it shows everyone, the supporters and players, evidence to understand and feel the team they are going to be this season.”

This is what fans are saying as Che Adams taunts Sheffield Wednesday with his goal celebration and post-match interview…

@Rob_WCFC: Perfect example of everything that’s wrong with the modern-day pro footballer. Che Adams scores a late winner in front of his own fans, but instead of going to celebrate with them, doesn’t even acknowledge them & goes to taunt the home fans & makes it all about him. Pathetic!
