Will Klarer Be The Next To Break Through
Thursday, 11th Apr 2019 12:29
Southampton Football Club was delighted to announce that 18-year-old defender Christoph Klarer had signed a two-year contract extension, will he be the next to breakthrough ?
Central defender Christoph Klarer has put pen to paper on a contract extension that will tie him to the club till June 2021, last season the Austrian was U18's team captain and this year has featured heavily in the U23's team despite not due to turn 19 till June.
Standing around 6ft 3 he has been a towering presence and the feeling around St Mary's is he could be the next to make the transition to the First Team, although tht is not likely to be till next season now, if Saints were to be safe with games to spare it would not be a surprise to see him appear in the final fixtures.
The only real issue would be that if he were to break through it would be a very inexperienced defence, although it is likely that Saints will be looking to make a good central defensive signing in the summer and then back him up with Vestergaard, Bednarek and one other whether Ralph Hasenhuttl would feel that could be Klarer is another matter, certainly though another incoming defender would spell the end for not only Wesley Hoedt who is out on loan, but at least one of Jack Stephens and Maya Yoshida.
Klarer has appeared for his country at U19 level and joined Saints academy from Rapid Wien in July 2016.

Even by our standards, the last week or so has been momentous for Blackpool FC. It all kicked off in the High Court - where too much of our future has been determined in the last two years.

So Christmas came and went and for many the lasting memory will be of Valeri Belokon breaking a long, self-imposed silence to send we supporters festive greetings.
