THE Premier League season hasn't started yet but an England coach has already been spotted in Southampton.

It wasn't Roy Hodgson but a coach bearing the England name and iconic Three Lions badge.

The surprise visit was captured on camera by Associated British Ports (ABP) staff.

In a picture uploaded to Twitter, it shows the stationary coach at a dock gate five with God's House Tower in the background.

Along with the photo, which was taken this afternoon, they tweeted the caption: “A bit of an unexpected view out of our window!”

A spokesman for ABP was unable to confirm the destination or the origin of the coach.
