Antonio’s LS honour

Antonio set for Southampton return

Michail Antonio has been honoured with a giant hanging shirt bearing his name and number at London Stadium.

He has been celebrated in recognition of his status as the reigning Hammer of the Year – the first recipient of the prestigious award at the LS.

The number 30 shirt will now hang in the concourse for the entire 2017/18 season, alongside permanent tributes to Bobby Moore, Sir Geoff Hurst, Martin Peters, Sir Trevor Brooking and Billy Bonds.

Michail said: “It’s a great honour. To be named Hammer of the Year last season was a fantastic achievement and this is a really nice touch from the Club.

“To have my name and number up there with the likes of Bobby Moore, Billy Bonds and Sir Trevor Brooking makes me feel very proud and humble.

“It’s thanks to the fans who voted for me. I’m so grateful for their support and hope that I can continue to repay them with goals and good performances this season.”
