Saints assistant manager Jesus Perez says the club are fully focused on tomorrow’s FA Cup tie against Burnley.

Perez spoke to the press on the day it was revealed the club has complained to the Professional Game Match Officials Ltd board regarding an alleged insult towards Adam Lallana by referee Mark Clattenburg.

"Our way always is when the game is over, it's time to think about the next game," said Perez.

"So our full focus is to prepare well for the next game, then to ensure we're in best condition for the next match.

"That's our style since we came to England.

"When you are in this business you have to be aware everything is possible.

"We're in the best league, the best environment, in terms of business and media, so we have to respect everything because everyone is proud of this business.

"So it's not difficult for us: we focus and we put our players away from the problems and just think about the football."

Burnley sit second in the Championship standings, and will have in-form ex-Southampton academy striker Danny Ings on show on the south coast in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.

Refusing to go into detail on Saints' complaint to PGMOL, headed up by Mike Riley, Perez said he expects the club to find out more information in the next few days.

"I won't talk about this situation, I prefer to stay away from this and just focus on the game on Saturday," he said.

"This type of situation doesn't help us in this moment, for this game, it's away, and we'll see in the next couple of days what's happening with this.

"I read it this morning; when you are in the games sometimes you can see or hear something, but history has led me to stay away from these things."

A Saints spokesman told the Echo this morning the club would not be making an official statement about the Clattenburg complaint.

That's my next door neighbour that is. Jesus of Baddesley - not to be confused with Jesus of Nazareth who was good with wine and fish but useless with a back four.

The Nazarene would probably have commented:

'Blesséd are the referees, for they shall interpret the rules.' and

'Render unto Manure the penalties that are Manure's, and unto The Saints' the penalties that are The Saints.'

(Sorry, Ospers, just saying .....)

just seen the Jesus interview on the official site. looks to me s though saints mean to take the fa cup very seriously this year ! This has to be a good thing . We are not in a relegation battle this year and with players returning from injury I think we have enough about us to give it a good shout .

I see Arsene has just gone on record saying he has no problem with Twattenburg. Not surprising after the early Xmas present he gave Arsenal against us!

No. I saw her with Jesus though. I heard he treats a woman's body as a temple - and tries to attend services as often as possible.

That's a great quote. Wish I had thought of it.

How about:

'Never in the field of human conflict, have so many mistakes been made, in so many matches by so few referees.'

Or:

'We will fight him at the FA, we will fight him at the PGMOL, we will fight him at the Referees' Association. We will NEVER surrender, NEVER! NEVER!'

That WAS Jesus, wasn't it?
