Dusan Tadic helped inspire Ajax to a famous European night away to Real Madrid on Tuesday – and many Southampton fans were blown away by their former player delivering on the biggest stage.
Dutch giants Ajax managed to record a sensational 4-1 away victory in the Bernabeu to qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals.
They were trailing 2-1 on aggregate from the first leg, but were outstanding out in Spain to send shockwaves around Europe and dump out the reigning champions.
Tadic was at the heart of the success on the night with an eye-catching display, as he tormented Madrid and provided a serious goal threat.
The 30-year-old attacker got himself on the scoresheet with a left-footed rocket, while he also weighed in with two assists.
Many Southampton fans on social media were amazed by the performance of their former player and wished he was still at St Mary’s.
Tadic played 162 times for Southampton during his four-year spell in England and certainly had his moments of brilliance.
But the Serbia international was sold last summer and reminded the Premier League team what they are missing with his European masterclass.
Here are some of the Southampton fans speaking about their former player Tadic:
