Mauricio Pellegrino says he is hoping to create a unique bond between the players and the Southampton fans, after arriving at Staplewood Campus for the first time today

Speaking in his first interview, the new Saints boss outlined his ambitions to take the club forward, highlighting that he will need everybody to do that.

"For me, to be competitive, we need everybody. To make the people feel proud of the team we have to try to create this synergy between the players and the fans,” Pellegrino explained

“We have to give them our effort, our passion, our work and they will feel this.

“If they feel this, I think it will be easier in the future. This is something the people quickly will feel when they see the players and the team is working together.

“This is something that is important, because when you are competing the small details make a huge difference."
