Tottenham and Liverpool fans react on Twitter to stunning Boufal goal for Southampton

By Harvey Byrne

Sofiane Boufal scored a stunning goal for Southampton on Wednesday evening and Tottenham and Liverpool fans were left wondering on Twitter why they didn’t sign the Morocco international.

The 23-year-old attacker was linked with a move to White Hart Lane throughout the summer.

However, he completed a £16million move to Southampton late in the window, which in turn made him the club’s record signing.

Signing with an injury he only made his debut for the Saints last Thursday in the club’s 1-0 defeat against Inter Milan at the San Siro.

He was handed his first start for the club against Sunderland and he repaid Claude Puel by scoring the one and only goal of the match in a 1-0 victory with a sweet strike.
