Ronald Koeman was the centre of attention last night as he returned to his native Holland to take charge of a Saints game for the first time.

The Dutch legend - who helped his country win the European Championships 26 years ago - was an obvious target for photographers and young fans as Saints kicked off their pre-season schedule with a comfortable 4-0 win against Dutch amateurs EHC Hoensbroek.

Koeman is pictured here alongside new signing Graziano Pelle, and sitting on the bench with members of his coaching staff including brother Erwin Koeman, Sammy Lee and goalkeeping coach Dave Watson.
