Puel: Treat it like any other game

By SFC Media Wed 19 Oct Inter vs Saints

Claude Puel says Southampton must not concern themselves with the occasion of playing Inter in the San Siro, and instead treat it like any other game.

Saints visit the iconic stadium tomorrow for the third match of their UEFA Europa League group stage campaign, as they bid for a famous result.

While it is a match that has been highly anticipated ever since the draw was made, Puel insists he and his players must remain grouned.

“I think this game is very important, but it’s one of the games for the qualification,” he said at his pre-match press conference.

“It’s important to stay with good concentration for every game of this Europa League.
 Of course, to play away at Inter Milan is exciting, but this is just a game for us.

“It’s important to try to take the three points.
The result is very important now for qualification.

“Of course, it’s a great team with great players, but we need points, and it’s the same for this team.”
