Martín Cáceres says he will give his all for the club, having joined Southampton on a short-term contract.
The experienced defender arrives at Saints on a deal until the end of the season, and says he’s extremely grateful to the club for the opportunity to experience the Premier League.
Cáceres hopes he can make a valuable contribution between now and the end of the season, as Saints look for a successful end to their Premier League campaign and a win at Wembley in the EFL Cup final.
“It was a difficult decision to come from a league like the Italian one from Juventus, but I wanted to play football here in England,” he said.
“Southampton opened the door to me playing English football and I’m very grateful for that. I will give my all for the club in the shirt.
“I want to be able to bring something to my new teammates and help push as hard as we can until the end of the season.
“We’ve got a final at the end of next week and obviously I want to help my teammates try to win a trophy and finish as high as we possibly can in the Premier League table.
“For me, I think it’s the best league in the world. Now I have the possibility to play here and I’m going to enjoy it to the maximum.”
Cáceres visited Staplewood Campus last week, and says his first impressions of Southampton have been extremely positive.
“The training ground is wonderful and my first impression of the club is very good indeed,” the 29 year-old added.
“I spent some time at the training ground last week doing some technical work, and above all my first impression of the club is very good.”
