Poch hails Osvaldo's growing maturity

Basingstoke Gazette: DANI OSVALDO DANI OSVALDO

Mauricio Pochettino hailed Dani Osvaldo’s growing maturity as the Saints record signing scored a wonder goal to bag his side a gutsy draw against Manchester City.

England assistant manager Ray Lewington was watching from the stands at St Mary’s.

He was no doubt alarmed by the quality he saw from the man who could lead the line for Italy against England in next summer’s World Cup after the nations were paired together in the group stages.

However, of far more importance to Saints fans is that Osvaldo is starting to settle with two goals in two games proof of his growing influence on the team.

That was after he had scored just once in his first 10 Premier League outings for Saints following a club record £15m arrival.

Pochettino said: “He’s a player that’s growing.

“He did very well.

“It’s not easy to adapt to this league, especially for a player that’s coming from abroad.

“He needs time to adapt, he needs patience and he showed that adaptation process is paying off.”

He added: “It was a great goal, an amazing goal.”

The goal was a timely reminder to England of the danger they will face in Brazil from what Pochettino agreed was, in some ways, ‘the enemy within.’ “He’s a very important player for the Italian national side and it’s actually very good for England that he is playing here, that he can be analysed and watched over and over again so you guys are aware of his danger,” said the Saints boss.

Osvaldo has the reputation of being a fiery character – he was sent off four times in 2012 playing for Roma and Italy.

Pochettino had to step in to haul him away from a melee against Aston Villa last Wednesday.

But the Saints boss said he loves players with character and that Osvaldo is not as bad as is painted out – even if his reputation IS deserved.

“It’s also true that he was provoked,” he said of the Villa incident.

“He was hit from behind, a very bad hit from behind, a very traitor-like hit from behind.

“It’s true he was provoked but nonetheless he does have a fiery character and we need to be aware of that.”

He continued: “It’s true – and his reputation, he has actually earned it.

“He has a full character, full of passion, he has a big heart and is full of fire inside and he needs that to perform as he does.

“He’s a player also that is growing.

“He’s learning, he’s maturing as a player and we’re very happy with his performance and overall with his general behaviour.”

of all the acquisitions this summer Mo Po was by far the most important his impact has been breathtaking, he has the whole of english football sitting up and taking notice. Even here in Portugal, the interest in Southampton is growing and their matchs are now compulsive viewing.
What an absolute genius Cortese is, such vision and my goodness i will be very surprised if Saints dont win the league quite soon.

As long as he channels his attitude in the right way he will be immense. That will show MoPo's man management skills are as good as his tactics and game planning.
On another note, i see the skates are to announce their new scapego..........man

Dispite not having a great deal of product so far Odvaldo has put in alot of work and SRL is begining to have trouble keeping up.

Its going to be difficult to accept but I think the time is fast aproaching for SRL to change the way he plays again. Rickie should stop dropping deep to act as provide and get in the box to score goals. He is an intellegent player and I can see him coming on late in games and getting the winner.

Danny and J-Rod are the future

In Poch we trust

Could Southampton's England midfielder Adam Lallana be the answer to United's creative problems?

But, if I were Moyes, I would go for another Saints player, Luke Shaw, instead as Patrice Evra's replacement at left-back.

Shaw is 18, has a great attitude and looks a big talent.

Yeah well it's no surprise that other clubs would want our top class players...but Saints are looking at improving their team as well. I think Saints could do a better job at developing Zaha but other than him there isn't another United player I'd want. Januzaj is good but he plays on the left and is no better than Lallana. Maybe De Gea to cover injuries at the moment.

Man U will miss out on top 4 this season and there will start the decline as they have to tighten their purse strings!

Savage is probably right, but Southampton is not a selling club anymore, so Moyes can keep his grubby hands off our players. Why would Lallana and Shaw want to go to to a second rate 'has been' team supported by plastic followers? The drift away from Old Trafford by the plastics before the end of the game says it all.

Southampton is a team on the way up - not down, and with the current management I do believe our supporters can look forward to a very bright future. We just need to strengthen in particular areas and hey presto! We are away!

No, no, no, redsnapper was just quoting from the article, not encouraging Manure to poach our players, they can have Foxy and Guly at a push but that is as far as we will go and only then if the price is right.

Ah, Confucious! A fellow Times reader - I should have guessed from the wisdom and logic that flows from your keyboard!

It was only a few weeks ago that I discovered there were other daily publications - indeed my newsagent was giving away one called the Daily Mirror.

2 goals from 2 games, keep the score ticking over Osvaldo. Going to be a great player for Saints.

Gramps - I think you are right. I did have my doubts, but he does seem to be adapting to the Premiership now. I think we can drop all thoughts of signing Suarez in the January window now ......!!!

I'd bet on some fantastic displays from Mr Osvaldo in the future.

I like the Murdoch press which demonstrates perfectly that freedom of the press should be restricted to the people who own one.

Yes he had a couple of wayward shots during the game but not as many as the multi - multi million pound players on the opposing side. NONE of our players were crap on saturday, in fact i'd go as far as saying none of the Citeh players were either. We just made them look ordinary in a really good game. What does he have to do to get certain people off his back?

Red snapper, I am sure you are a nice guy, but PLEASE never suggest any of our players might be wanted by another club, and more than that it is forbidden to mention a player might ever want a move. Sunday's Football Focus suggested so done should go in at £20-£25 million for Schneiderlin.
What's ours is ours!

We have already lost Gareth Bale, Walcott and Ox! Jeez, where would be if they were also still here. Let other clubs try and match the standard of the Saints' Academy - now acknowledged as the BEST in the country.

Interesting and nice to see mopo put so much faith and time into ossie.... If gaston was his signing would he do the same? I think with a bit of the same gaston too could come good, had a brilliant start last season

I would be surprised if the manager treated a player any differently knowing it was just a matter of time. I would suspect that the problem is a personality clash given Gaston's agents comment of liking the chairman but not so keen on the manager.

I am no way down on mopo however corky stated that there hadn't been much in the way of communication with him. Now I think corky is a great player, may not get in my starting 11 but I think worth more minutes of play time.
