Thursday, 13th Aug 2015 16:21
Ronald Koeman has spoken of how pleased he is to have landed Oriol Romeu in today's press conference ahead of Saturday's clash with Everton at St Mary's.
Ronald Koeman has told the press about how he is pleased to get Oriol Romeu into the Saints ranks.
"I know the player already from the academy of Barcelona and I knew about his situation because I know his agent,"
"In our philosophy and how we like to play football it's a midfield player who involves perfectly in our team."
"23 years old, played already in the Premier League, had a good season in Stuttgart last year and he makes the team stronger, He's a very good player."
"It's not easy to be a player in the first XI of Chelsea because they have so many good players and for young players it's difficult. It's always up to the manager, the confidence of the player.
"I think it's the right moment for the player to make this move to Southampton because he will play more for Southampton than for Chelsea.
"It's a good feeling and he showed already his performance today n training and he's hungry to play and to be part of Southampton."
Hopefully Romeu will be another astute Koeman signing and its already looking like the squad has been strengthened in all areas, especially the defensive side of the midfield where Koeman now has three choices again once Jordy Clasie is fit, something he has never truly had since Jack Cork's injury before Xmas and subsequent transfer to Swansea City.
