Southampton in favour of having the transfer window closed before the start of the season.
I don’t need to list them, you know there’s other clubs that have similar situations
The English Football League announced its clubs will discuss closing the summer window early following reports that top-flight clubs are pushing for the same decision. It will be discussed in next months shareholder meeting.
“I think that it’s the system we need to look at, so we’re a huge proponent of closing the transfer window before the season starts,
We’re a huge proponent of looking at why these kinds of situations even evolve.
I don’t see Virgil so much as a reason to put it all on him – I think it is part of what is happening in football and it is happening in other clubs.
I don’t need to list them, you know there’s other clubs that have similar situations, so it’s not like we’re the only one and I have to say the key is how (Southampton manager) Mauricio Pellegrino has dealt with the situation.
He is a very strong leader and he has kept everybody on the job and focused, and he has even dealt with Virgil very well and they are communicating openly with each other.”
