Saints eyeing Vilhena and Djuricic

first_img Koeman decided to make those moves after Cork rejected a new contract at Southampton in favour of a deal at Sunday’s opponents Swansea. “For a coach, he is always a player good to have in the squad because he can play in different positions in midfield,” the Saints boss said. “If you look back to the first part of the season, he was not starting. “If I have all the players available, he is not one of the three players in the midfield. “But he is an experienced player and he is a player who knows his situation and when he came into the team he was doing well. “It is always important to have these kind of players for the coach, but, finally, the player has decided not to accept the contract and that means a different situation for the club, for the coach.” Koeman was surprised by the amount of time it took Cork to come to his decision, having first opened discussions two months ago, but understands the player’s decision. “We believe that we offered the player a very good contract and the player told me that it wasn’t about the numbers in the contract,” he added. “It wasn’t about the money, but about his feeling, about maybe not playing enough. “Okay, I can’t guarantee nobody they will play more. It is always competition that you have in your squad.” Cork has been a bedrock at Saints since 2011, with his exit the latest which leaves the team looking vastly different to when Jay Rodriguez and Sam Gallagher last featured. Both have missed the entire campaign to date so far with injury, although the latter is at last closing in on a return. “Sam Gallagher is starting training with the under-21s,” Koeman said. “I think that it is good for the player to start at a little lower level, having been a long-time out of training. “With Jay, there is not any other positive news. He has continued working but I can’t say now that he is two weeks or three weeks or one week closer to team training, no.” Now, the Dutchman is looking to bring in a new player, with his key targets Benfica’s Djuricic – a Serbia international who spent the first half of the season on loan to Mainz – and Vilhena at former club Feyenoord. “On principle we are looking for a player that can play in different positions,” Koeman said. “Okay, we have our interest in Djuricic and he can play one of the positions in midfield, he can play on the left in a wing position in a free role, he can play in the right-wing position in a free role. “That is the best – to bring in a player who can play in different positions. “The case of Vilhena is that the management of the player called me and they were afraid about his situation at Feyenood. “I said ‘okay, I like the player’. First, the player is 20-years-old, he played a lot in Holland, he played 80-85 per cent of all the games in two seasons when I was the coach in Feyenoord. “It is part of our philosophy in the club to have young players. That’s not a risk. “I don’t know what level he will reach, but at least he is now I think at a higher level than most of the under-21 midfielders. That’s always what you look for.” Southampton manager Ronald Koeman wants to bring a utility player in before the transfer deadline, with Tonny Vilhena and Filip Djuricic top of his shopping list. Press Association This month, like so many winter windows before it, has been quiet at St Mary’s, with the loan addition of Eljero Elia the only arrival at the top-four contenders. That is how Koeman had planned to keep it until injuries began to mount and midfielder Jack Cork rejected a new contract in favour of a move to Swansea. last_img read more

Ghana journey starts against Swazis- Migne

first_img“It has been interesting for me to know the players and have some few answers about them in few days of training. But the most important bit is in competition. Sometimes the player might be ready in training but it is important to see them in competition,” the Frenchman said after his final training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on Thursday evening.He says he is pleased with the quality of the players and the improvement they have marked since he first had a session with them two weeks ago, though he reiterates there is a lot to be done especially in terms of raising their fitness levels to endure a 90-minute game with unwavering tempo.Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne shouts instructions to players during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on May 24, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“In few days of training, there is not so much we can do. But we have started the journey,” the coach noted.Migne had included five foreign based players in his preliminary squad but all of them have pulled out of the tie citing various reasons and they can’t be compelled as the two games fall out of FIFA friendly dates.The tactician, though disappointed, looked at it with a positive eye, noting that it will give him an opportunity to assess the local based lads better and hand them a chance to compete for places with their foreign based counterparts.“It is a shame because I lose time to look at all of them. Ghana is just close by and we have little time between now and then to prepare well. But I must be positive because it will be a good thing to look at the local players who can compete with foreign players in future,”“It is difficult for an international game not to have some strong players but it is interesting for us looking at the future like CHAN, CECAFA and also for the Under-23 who make a good number in the team,” the coach further noted.Harambee Stars players during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on May 24, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluHe further said; “We are trying to build something for the future and I am happy to have a start on Friday.”Migne expects a tough encounter from Swaziland who will be using the match to prepare for the upcoming COSAFA Cup and he says he knows a bit about them having watched most of their players turning out for Mbabane Swallows during his time in Congo.“I know it will not be an easy match but the most important thing for me is my team and how we play, how we improve and correct our mistakes. If you want to win, you have to try play well with good organization,” the coach added.Meanwhile, Migne says he will incorporate all junior coaches into his technical bench as he looks to imprint a similar philosophy across all national teams. He says Michael Amenga (U17), Stanley Okumbi (U20) and Francis Kimanzi (U23) will all be part of his backroom staff.During Thursday’s training sessions, Kimanzi was present alongside the other French assistant Nicolas Bouriquett. Goalkeeper coach Guilleme Coffy and Osteopath Ludovic Breul have also linked up with the team.Harambee Stars goalkeeper trainer Guilleme Coffy issues instructions to Boniface Oluoch and Timothy Odhiambo during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on May 24, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluAfter Swaziland, Stars will face Equatorial Guinea on Monday before travelling to India for a four-nation invitational tournament.After that tourney, Migne says he will look to watch more local games including the National Super League, Division One and Division Two to search for more talent.“Sometimes, you might not find a good team but good individual players. We will watch all the leagues, even on the streets to search for the good players. You never know where you will find them,” he further stated.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Harambee Stars head coach Sebastien Migne gestures during a training session at the Kenya School of Monetary Studies on May 24, 2018.
