Saints speak with Koeman - who's a "perfect" fit

Saints have held talks with Dutch legend Ronald Koeman - with one of the club's former managers describing him as a "perfect" choice to replace Mauricio Pochettino.

The 51-year-old outgoing Feyenoord boss is a serious contender to succeed Pochettino at St Mary’s, after the Argentine quit to join Tottenham last week.

Koeman met with officials from Saints on Monday to discuss the position, although the club are expected to also meet with other candidates.

The timescale for an appointment is most likely to be another ten days to two weeks, but Koeman is very much in the frame.

Fellow Dutchman Mark Wotte, who managed Saints during the 2008/09 campaign, believes Koeman, who remains the odds-on favourite with the bookies, would be an excellent choice.

“In my opinion, Ronald Koeman is perfect for Southampton for several reasons,” he said.

“He has a great CV as a player, winning the 1988 European Championship with Holland and the Champions League with Barcelona “But he has also managed PSV, Ajax and Feyenoord, as well as Valencia and Benfica abroad, so he is a very experienced coach.”

Wotte, who is currently the Scottish Football Association’s performance director, believes Koeman would bring a similar footballing philosophy to that of Pochettino, while he would also be willing to promote players from the academy system.

“As a Dutch manager, he is always used to playing ‘the Dutch way’, with high pressure, a passing style and a positive approach, playing to win and not always playing not to lose,” he said.

“His last job at Feyenoord was initially a big challenge, as a lack of funds forced him to work with ‘the kids’, but most of them now are selected in the 23-man squad for Holland and also qualifying for the Champions League first phase – a great achievement for the Feyenoord academy, but also for the talent management skills of Ronald Koeman.

“Knowing Southampton and St Mary’s personally, he would be an excellent choice.”

One of Koeman’s biggest influences is Johan Cruyff, having played in his famous Barcelona team from 1989 to 1995, winning the European Cup in 1992.

The centre-half, who was capped 78 times by his country, moved into management after hanging up his boots, working as an assistant with the national team and then Barcelona.

His first manager’s job came at Vittesse Arnhem, leading them to a sixth-place finish in the 2000/01 Eredivisie, before moving to Ajax.

He won the domestic double in his first season there, finished as runners-up in the next campaign, and then regained the league title in 2003/04.

He left in 2005, as PSV regained status as top dogs, then joined Portuguese side Benfica.

Koeman spent a fairly unsuccessful year there, before taking up the reins at PSV.

Again, he lasted just one full season, before joining Valencia, although he did deliver an Eredivisie title before his departure.

In Spain, he won the Copa del Rey, but Valencia’s league form proved poor, with the club parting company with Koeman in April 2008.

A brief, unsuccessful stint with AZ Alkmaar then followed.

In 2011, though, Koeman arrived at Feyenoord, reviving the ailing club.

Having finished tenth in the Eredivisie the season before he arrived, Koeman led Feyenoord to second place in his first campaign – their best result in 11 years.

They then came third in 2012/13, before finishing as runners-up to Ajax last term.

Koeman announced in February that he would leave the club this summer, when his contract expired.

Former Swansea boss Michael Laudrup, another name who might fit the bill, does not look to be in the frame.

In an interview in his homeland, the Dane has said he will take time out of the game until an opportunity with a really big club comes along.

Previous bookies’ favourite Murat Yakin is not thought to have been approached.

Koeman had a terrific shot as a player, and scored some fantastic goals especially from free kicks. If he becomes Saints coach, perhaps he can teach the Saints players how to shoot at goal and score, and then we will not be subject to a lack of goals and losing from winning positions like last season. He seems like a good fit for the saints.

I believe that most of us would agree that he would be one of the better options for us, but who on earth thought it was a good idea to ask for Wotte's opinion?
I'm not convinced that his, is an opinion that most Saints fans would listen to with fondness or any level of acceptance!?

Since you ask, Saints have sold one player so far. That would be Lambert who the club were content to let go to his boyhood club. Other than that, the roster remains the same as last year, other than those players released. Others may leave, but probably not to Spurs. They have ambition.

Only the appointment of a Proven, Successful High Profile Man Manager would convince Adam to stay, not sure if Koeman is that but is better than most others on the list so far.
I still believe that Katharina & Ralph could convince Rafa Benitez to come. That would really show their ambition and lift Saints Profile as the signing of Keegan did back then.
Rafa's high salary would be recovered in no time as he would attract better quality players, so I say GO GET RAFA NOW !!

You can't blame Wotte for anything, the club were in melt down when he arrived, selling everything and everyone and he had a bunch of kids to try and stave off relegation and he stayed on though not getting paid. No one could have saved Saints in that last season when we went into administration.

Koeman's seems a good fit and he has experience and we need a tough experienced manager who can put a stop to the exodus. If Luke and Adam do go then Saints are more likely to sell with money coming back and player exchange as long as it is a player who can improve us.

Without jumping to any conclusions is it just a nice coincidence that Koeman has been available for months, the club he is joining from has a very highly regarded reputation for youth development and we've just sacked our own highly successful youth management team for no apparent reason?

Also, as I see we are in alleged player-plus-cash negotiations with Man Utd that would see them have two top left backs on their books, they would seem to have a young Dutch left back who is surplus to requirements.

Massive job on his hands to prevent Lallana going, but if he can keep any other players that are 'unsettled' then add maybe a couple of his Dutch contingent then we're in for another exciting season....

Keoman looks like a good candidate, an absolute playing legend for the dutch international side and for barca under johan cruyff. Has an impressive managerial cv too, Ajax, Benfica, PSV, and Valencia, although not unblemished it is all very high class experience and has bags of european experience. For me I'm starting to like the idea, if you put that cv against MP's cv when he joined us there is no competition. I trust the board to make the right call and whomever it is, and with or without AL, LS and others I will be 100% behind my club when the season starts.
Always and forever a Saint! COYR!

Would have preferred Moyes, he would have known what was needed and he is loyal.
Koeman will be taking his first Premier league job.
If his is successful we know what will happen, whereas, after his Man U experiences, Moyes would stick around I think.
Got a feeling that Moyes would want around £3m pa, probably quite a bit more that Koeman requires.
Don't want the club to make any rash decisions, but the sooner the right man is installed we can go about our business of bringing some decent players in.

Only the appointment of a Proven, Successful High Profile Man Manager would convince Adam to stay, not sure if Koeman is that but is better than most others on the list so far.
I still believe that Katharina & Ralph could convince Rafa Benitez to come. That would really show their ambition and lift Saints Profile as the signing of Keegan did back then.
Rafa's high salary would be recovered in no time as he would attract better quality players, so I say GO GET RAFA NOW !!
Rafa would be a massive mistake. He would only come if the money was good enough, I'm sure he would not care about saints, just topping up his pension fund.

Also Sign up little pea, he would be a great signing !!
I'm pretty sure that Ralph said there is a team of 20 odd people constantly scouting players and managers, so surely there must have been a short list already.

I find it sad that the fans of the club where Lalla started his career, although he wasn't really there for that long, are wanting the player, and in some cases willing him to join diverpool just so there club can pocket around £6mill. they aren't concerned with whats best for the player or the national side, they just want a few quid.
says everything you need to know about the fans of the club with the silly name!
I know it was set by a tribunal but am I the only one who thinks that 25% is a bit too big? I would have thought that 15% would have been more suitable considering that it was saints who took all the risk and turned him into the player he is now. I don't begrudge them a sell on fee but 25% for a twelve year old?

I wonder who will be taking that duty on, we have to remember, that as well as a new Manager, we are going to see a whole new raft of training staff, it will take time for them to all meld into the new wave.

I do agree with you, we have come a long way in five years, a Manager of this status would have been something in our dreams in our darker days. Wiki says it is pronounced "Cooman", rather than Ko man, something to get used to if we can get him. Abbreviating him to RK is a problem here RK = Ralph Krueger! The refresh key is going to get a bashing over the next few days, let's hope for a decent outcome.

Only this time there will be a little money for him to spend and a couple of established stars who he may be able to convince to see out their contracts.
But if Moyes gets the job I won't lose too much sleep - He's a safe pair of hands until the club gets back on track and can operate in the way he wants it to.

If the stories coming from the Dutch and Belgian sites are anything to go by Koeman is an excellent team and man manager. Apparently there were players with tears in their eyes when he said goodbye to the club. I think Adam is the only one (maybe his agent also) who can convince him of anything. He is our club captain and he has treated us with contempt. I don't want him back - just take the maximum amount we can for him boo him a couple of times a season and move on. A few weeks or so ago I would not have thought him capable of this sort of dishonourable conduct and considered him our leader for the next few years. He's crossed a line and deserves nothing in my opinion. But, the only opinion that matters is the man's in the driving seat and if he wants him I'm sure he'll try to turn Adam's head back. Only time will tell. Excited about the unknown future for the club but really disillusioned by the antics and attitudes the prima donnas are displaying toward us - their paymasters.

Yes I can see how this threads together and we'll never be able to be 100% sure of anything - reasonable questions to ask though JD. Not convinced of the NL LB though - he had his chance to come here and turned his nose up at the offer the moment Manure showed their interest - (We've had a little too much that aimed at us recently) He never seemed to fulfill the hopes of those who thought he was good enough though has he? Prefer Shaw to go to Chelski and we take Bertrand px. Or the current Feyenoord LB if the incoming manager considers him suitable.

Can't quite get my head around this one. Felix Magath is still manager of Fulham isn't he? If we were interested in him Fulham would have to give permission to Saints board to speak to him and Sky would have picked up on this surely. Also we would have to pay compo for FM. Got to be a wind up.

I had a look to seems to be a possible replacement for Ricky and could work well with Hernandez ?
Koeman is a big man you would not want to mess with but is he a good man manager, if so he could be good but will he be able to convince Adam to stay?
My choice is still Rafa Benitez because he would be high profile and should the club has real ambition.
IMHO I think Ronald KOEMAN is high profile? don't you?

I do agree with you, we have come a long way in five years, a Manager of this status would have been something in our dreams in our darker days. Wiki says it is pronounced "Cooman", rather than Ko man, something to get used to if we can get him. Abbreviating him to RK is a problem here RK = Ralph Krueger! The refresh key is going to get a bashing over the next few days, let's hope for a decent outcome.
Well he had the nickname 'tintin' at barca!

Why the heck do people keep classing Spurs as a top six club, I really cant uderstand the mentality, they never were and never will be, they are a "wanna be if they could be club", Arsenal have always been the super club in te north of London there's only the few that support Spurs that would think any different because they dont know any difference.!!!!

i'm concerned at the slowness of the appointment of our new manager. both Adkins and Pochettino were appointed in a much more timely manner than this "board" are doing. Whilst taking time to get the right man is important being week and slow is not encouraging for either the new manager or the players or us the fans. At risk of sounding like a broken record my trust in this board has evaporated and I doubt they have any interest in doing what is right by the club. I doubt the manager will come from any of the names we'd expect or hope. More likely is someone like Bruce Arena from America due to Rk's links or a n other that we've not speculated about. It's sad that in the space of 3 weeks i've gone from positive about SFC to really worried. I feel more cynical about the future of SFC than I did under Rupert Lowes leadership which I know and appreciate is saying a lot

I think patience is of the essence, we need to make sure we have the right person for what is going to be a very difficult and onerous job.

I would suggest that the new manager has already been agreed but wont be announced until the start of the World Cup that way it gives him a bit of control over the outgoing transfers. If AL and LS are a blinding success then their value would increase, if they are mediocre then they might not be sought after. personally I don't rate England's chances at all, with Rooney as the main man but there may be some players that will come back smelling of roses. speaking of Rooney, I could never understand why Hernandez was always on the bench but I suppose with Rooney he has to be centre of attention and therefore there was no place for good players hence the poor performances of Manu, and before anyone says that Rooney was out injured they didn't do better with him in the team

I don't quite believe that myself but the thought has certainly occurred that it is easier to say no transfers before a manager is in place. Then appoint him at the start of the world cup when no transfers of those involved can happen.
Felix Magath's odds have gone right out so no idea what all that was about. Big Ron less than evens, Moyes 8s, MacLaren 12s then some no mark called Ralph Rangnick at 20s. No money on anything else on betfair

I believe that the new manager was tapped up when Cortese left and Pocchentino showed his disapproval. They are just leaving a respectable time before the new manager brings his staff in (hence why Dodds was given the elbow). Lets hope it is the start of another successful season, the only downside being the new manager using saints as a stepping stone to a "bigger club".

I know it was set by a tribunal but am I the only one who thinks that 25% is a bit too big? I would have thought that 15% would have been more suitable considering that it was saints who took all the risk and turned him into the player he is now. I don't begrudge them a sell on fee but 25% for a twelve year old?
I find it far more sad that Southampton FC tried to buy their way out of this long-standing deal at a time when The Cherries were in the mire financially, offering AFCB a figure which, at the time, was insulting to say the least. I've no quarrel whatsoever with Saints. In fact, your club had done much more to help AFCB in the past than any other I can name, but your club's actions a few years ago regarding this matter were those of a bully trying to take advantage of a vulnerable victim. I hope now of course that Adam has a fantastic WC, and Gareth Bale convinces his club (our friends Real Madrid) to trump any and all bids for your best player of recent seasons.

says everything you need to know about the fans of the club with the silly name!
I know it was set by a tribunal but am I the only one who thinks that 25% is a bit too big? I would have thought that 15% would have been more suitable considering that it was saints who took all the risk and turned him into the player he is now. I don't begrudge them a sell on fee but 25% for a twelve year old?
I find it far more sad that Southampton FC tried to buy their way out of this long-standing deal at a time when The Cherries were in the mire financially, offering AFCB a figure which, at the time, was insulting to say the least. I've no quarrel whatsoever with Saints. In fact, your club had done much more to help AFCB in the past than any other I can name, but your club's actions a few years ago regarding this matter were those of a bully trying to take advantage of a vulnerable victim. I hope now of course that Adam has a fantastic WC, and Gareth Bale convinces his club (our friends Real Madrid) to trump any and all bids for your best player of recent seasons.
I've no problem with Afcb either. It's interesting that you feel you were bullied. We made an offer which you refused. In the same way Arsenal bought out the add ons on Theo Walcott's contract and we (Lowe) took it because we needed the cash. Anyway you appear to have moved on to better things. I presume therefore that will will quite happy if we also turn away the bullies and vultures trying to steal our better players. They have contracts which we expect to hold them to and IF we decide to sell AL at OUR evaluation of him then you will obviously get your 25% as the contract states. If we keep him though you will get nowt.

well watching the first half of the England game a few things spring to mind,

Rickie and Luke were stood next to each other in the line up, I hope Rickie wasn't trying to tap Luke up. oh no that's a rumour so must now be true!
Shrek was singing the national anthem, how long did it take to teach him that, or were there idiot boards being held up!
luke gets blamed for their goal, would that have been the case if he was a manure player?
Rickie does a clear handball in the build up to our goal that wasn't given, I suppose if he was still a saints player the ref would have given it!
Rickie back heels a shot after his handball against the post, it would have gone in if he was a saints player!
shrek cant stay on a wing and looks awful yet again, should be dropped.

second half,
southamptons Rickie lambert scores a cracker of a goal (I`m still claiming him for the world cup, we got him there after all!)

says everything you need to know about the fans of the club with the silly name!
I know it was set by a tribunal but am I the only one who thinks that 25% is a bit too big? I would have thought that 15% would have been more suitable considering that it was saints who took all the risk and turned him into the player he is now. I don't begrudge them a sell on fee but 25% for a twelve year old?
I find it far more sad that Southampton FC tried to buy their way out of this long-standing deal at a time when The Cherries were in the mire financially, offering AFCB a figure which, at the time, was insulting to say the least. I've no quarrel whatsoever with Saints. In fact, your club had done much more to help AFCB in the past than any other I can name, but your club's actions a few years ago regarding this matter were those of a bully trying to take advantage of a vulnerable victim. I hope now of course that Adam has a fantastic WC, and Gareth Bale convinces his club (our friends Real Madrid) to trump any and all bids for your best player of recent seasons.
It was a completely different club back then and we have had our fair share of vipers in the driving seat. Sorry you feel that way. Always liked Burnmuff.

Perhaps instead you could be thanking the staff of Saints for taking that raw talent and turning him into a £25m + footballer of which you can take a large enough slice to keep you in a manner to which you have not been accustomed. Burnmuff haven't done too badly taking the crumbs off our table over the years and Saints have been quite happy to step in and help when possible.
We've had more people driving the club who have look at Burnmuff positively than those that had done the dirty on them. And yes we did do the dirty at a time when perhaps your club needed an arm put round it's shoulder and to be re-assured everything will turn out fine. That's business though and it could be said Saints cut their own throat each time they help Burnmuff.
If Burnmuff were to go out of business it could possible put quite a few thousand on to our gates - the lesson here I guess is don't urinate off the management of the big boy next door because it's in his interest to ensure you die.
Always check your results once I've done complaining about ours and hope you're around for many years yet.

Feel sorry for Foster. He gets another big chance and he's behind a back four not good enough for a Scottish premier club let alone representing England.
Cracking sliding tackle from Stirling but he's going to have to curb his enthusiasm with non English refs.

I remember him as a player when I used to go and what Armenia Bielefeld, B Moenchen Gladbach and Hertha Bsc. Christ he was good, hard as nails, tackled like Frannie on a roid rage. Bloody quick and a good passer of the ball too. If my memory serves me right (and it frequently doesn't) his kamikaze style caused him injuries which caught up with him in the end and he also liked the grosse bier and apfelKorn a little too much - though I might be wrong on that. Happy to have him loyally ensconced with Fulham. Rare to have a man stick to his word nowadays.
Hope there are a couple of our youngsters reading this.

BBC sport are reporting that L'pool are near to completing the deal for Can. If that goes through then they won't want AL. What we he do then?

lalla will play for saints, like he`s contracted to! if he doesn't like it ten tough luck.

going back to the England game,

its so hard watching milner play at right back when we have 2 right backs at our club who are both far superior than him. I know the ex-fish is the starting RB (though I cant understand it) for roy, but if he gets injured is milner the best choice? pre match the itv crew were saying he`s the better choice over smalling and jones, if he`s the best back up we had better hope that the ex-fish doesn't pick up an injury!
do England need to start with shrek? or should he be used as an impact sub. he`s meant to be fit for this world cup, and isn't suspended either, but watching him tonight its clear he is missing something, a yard of pace maybe. we were told that this was going to be his world cup but on the evidence of tonight, which I admit was only a friendly (though someone should have told the Ecuador players), it looks like we are gong to see another poor world cup from him. I would much rather see Rickie start, you know your going to get 100% from him in every game.

I hear Suarez is of to Barcelona for 65 million. I hope we'll be getting a sell-on agreement if AL goes there, because he'll want to upsticks when the Scousers are knocked out of the Champions league and finish sixth in the Prem. There's a one-man team, Liverpool. Two seasons last year: the one where Suarez played, and the one where he didn't.

Perhaps, that's why they wanted to sign Lallana quickly. They might think he wouldn't have been interested if Suarez wasn't there.

Can't argue with that. From a purely selfish perspective happy that not one more of our players was selected as that seems to have made them target for all involved just because they are Saints players.

For my money Shaw (to use FM terms) has to be rated as unconvincing as a LB as LWB he would be accomplished but I suspect somewhere along the line some manager is going to want him to be an out and out left winger and teach him to cut inside - I think he might reach outstanding in that position but he is too prone to errors as his defensive capabilities are not up to scratch or it may be lack of experience. I've been following the Can rumours and wondered where Lallana would fit in with a MF that also has Henderson/Gerrard/Co
utinho/Allen/Sterlin
g/Moses/Lucas/Albert
o and now possible Can.
If Skiverpool sign Can I guess the press vultures will have him going to Twattingham instead - anywhere except staying where he is in fact.
Clyne is the best RB in the country bar none but let's keep that to ourselves eh!?

Maybe if Koeman lays him out in the locker he'll start to understand he's better equipped to concentrate on his football and leave the pugilism to the big boys.
Or maybe big Jose will do it instead. He could have made a real name for himself here but what a stupid, silly, egotistical little boy he's proved to be. Shame.

I think that Ronald Koeman ticks all the boxes.He a lot of experience both as a player and in management As a fan of the club for well over 70 years I hope he gets the job.
