Ronald Koeman: Said Saints controlled the game

Animated Southampton boss Ronald Koeman labelled reports of him going to Chelsea as “bull****” after the win at Manchester United.

The Dutchman was linked with the Stamford Bridge hotseat in the Daily Mirror but when quizzed on the talk following the 1-0 win over Manchester United he quickly rebuffed the idea.

Koeman had stated on Friday that he would consider a move to a bigger club and hoped Chelsea boss Guus Hiddink “puts a good word in” for him at the English champions.

However, Koeman insisted his words had been misinterpreted.

“That’s the problem when you do an interview in Dutch. It’s all bulls***. You can’t win when you talk to them,” he said.

“I continue at Southampton and I still have one year on my contract.

“After that, who knows. I didn’t say anything about Chelsea, I got asked about Chelsea and about Hiddink so I answered.

Speaking about the game Koeman said his side controlled the game at Old Trafford.

Saints grabbed the all important winning goal with just three minutes remaining when sub and new signing Charlie Austin headed home James Ward-Prowse’s free-kick.

It was the first time Southampton have won back-to-back league games at Old Trafford against United for the first time since 1969, after their 1-0 win 12 months ago.

“We played very good. Our organisation was good, we were very compact, we had good pressing,” said Koeman.

“We stayed in the game, controlled the game and you saw more nerves in the Man Utd team and finally we score from a corner kick.

“We showed spirit today, it was an amazing result for the second time here.”
