Koeman wants more aggression

Graziano Pelle and Dusan Tadic must be more aggressive to thrive in the Premier League, according to Southampton boss Ronald Koeman.

I think sometimes he can be a little bit more aggressive maybe, to expect in which position the ball falls down. But he needs players from the midfield and with movements around him.

If there comes a long ball, you have to expect something.

If you wait and you go then, sometimes you are too late.

– Ronald Koeman speaking to Southern Daily Echo

Forster eyes England call

Fraser Forster is hoping his move south can see him move up the reckoning in the race to become England's first-choice goalkeeper - and Southampton boss Ronald Koeman is backing his new signing to do just that.

It is one of them where I have only played two games in the Premier League and it is a fantastic league to be a part of.

It comes down to playing well for Southampton first and foremost - that is what it is all about. If I do all that then we will just have to see what happens with England.

For me personally it is about me working as hard as I can with Dave (Watson, Southampton and England goalkeeping coach) and in the gym and improve myself as a keeper.

– Fraser Forster
