Shaw right to stay at Saints says Le Saux

Basingstoke Gazette: Graeme Le Saux Graeme Le Saux

Graeme Le Saux believes it is too soon for Southampton's Luke Shaw to move to Chelsea.

Le Saux, who played for both the Blues and Saints in his illustrious career, believes the 18-year-old left-back is at the right club to continue his development.

Shaw, a boyhood Chelsea fan, has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge as long-term successor to Ashley Cole and is in line for a call up for England's friendly with Denmark next month.

Le Saux, an ambassador for the Budweiser Open Trials campaign, which will provide amateur footballers with the opportunity to play at Wembley in front of professional scouts, said: "I've been watching him play quite a lot.

"He has the qualities of an attacking full-back who has a lot of pace and a lot of energy.

"His defending is getting better as he gets more experienced.

"He's still very young and the more experience he gains for his club and at under-21 level, I feel that he's in the right place at the moment and his development is crucial."

Cole's influence has waned and he is currently second-choice left-back for Chelsea and England.

Le Saux thinks it was inevitable age would impact on Cole, with the 33-year-old overtaken by Everton's Leighton Baines in the England pecking order.

"I would pick the player that is in form, playing regularly and deserves it on past performance for England," Le Saux added.

"When you look at Ashley Cole you think of the high standards he's set himself over his career and when I've seen him play he doesn't look as sharp as he had done before.

"Inevitably after playing so many games and getting older, it does take a bit longer to recover from injuries and to maintain a level of fitness for that position, marauding forwards like he does.

"Maybe he's not able to play quite so many games.

"For Ashley Cole it's important he maintains his levels in training and when he plays.

"He's a fantastic professional, in terms of his attitude, and he has to maintain his focus."

For Jose Mourinho's Chelsea, Cole's place has been taken by Cesar Azpilicueta, the Spain right-back playing on his 'wrong' flank.

A rib injury saw Cole drop out of the team initially and a poor performance at Newcastle on November 2 did not help matters.

He has started three Premier League games since, when Branislav Ivanovic was injured and Azpilicueta switched to right-back, and been an unused substitute in the last five games.

Mourinho insists Azpilicueta has been selected ahead of Cole purely on merit and that the England centurion has a future at Chelsea.

Le Saux, who is also an admirer of Aston Villa's on-loan Chelsea defender Ryan Bertrand and Kieran Gibbs of Arsenal, praised the Spaniard for his displays.

"Azpilicueta's done very well when he's played," he added.

"I have played right-back on occasion and it is difficult.

"It's comparable to driving a left-hand drive car in Europe. You have to recalibrate your brain a little bit. Thankfully there's no roundabouts on a football pitch."

Our chances in Brazil are not good and Hodgson should be looking towards the Euro in two years time for England to begin their big revival. That means developing the younger players. And that means Shaw should go to Brazil.

Looking at things with detached impartiality and without my favoured Saints hat on - and with maximum neutrality and even-handed open-minded objectivity - my unbiasedly picked first 11 in the Brazil opener would be Shaw, Chambers,Ward-Prowse
, Lallana, Lambert, Rodrigues and 5 others (with Nat Clyne on the bench).

I wish every pundit would stop selling Shaw to Cheski, Saints have come so far over the last few years and Shaw has been with us for over 10years now, We are getting better evey year and if we keep our best player Saints can get to the very top, I have no doubt.

Shaw to Chelski is not inevitable, so stop it!!!!!

No room for Jack Cork ? You really are being anti-Saints.

You should also poach young Sam off the Jocks and give him a competitive start.

Extremely balanced view Confucious - clearly delivered with the authority of years of experience (none of it coloured Red and white I suspect) one can only gain from many miserable, wet, windblown Saturdays watching our world cup stars of the past at The Dell and ST M's - you forgot to mention Borat who should be English and just hasn't realized it yet. Would the five others include Cork by any chance?

Success for a team like the Saints is a double edged sword. The club's profile has been raised and with it closer scrutiny from the "bigger" clubs. Not only are the players under the media spotlight but so is MoPo whose stock is ever on the rise. I am a little fearful that if MoPo is tempted away then it could herald a minor exodus of players. Sorry to be so negative but unless a major investment is made in the summer MoPo might consider he has taken the club as far as it can go.

I always rated Graeme Le Saux as a Player and an intelligent man but I'm not a man who believes in praying for anything because I think there's a sting in his tail with his comments.

He suggest Luke is better off staying with Saints while he's still growing and learning so flip the coin again does he envisage Luke leaving Saints after this period for I quote: A better Team? Luke knows he is playing in a better Team, he works with a young Manager who in 13 months has changed Southampton FC to a better Team and will make them a threat against every Team with the old expression about better Teams, Saints are 1 goal up the moment they step on the Pitch, Teams will be scared to play Saints soon, it's already going in that direction.

I've commented in The Echo many times that all the Players love MoPo and want to win and play for him, they love his Coaching methods everything, all the Players who have been interviewed this season rate MoPo as a world class Manager and none of the Players want to leave.

Everyone knows that often Contracts are not worth the paper they are written on but Luke must of been sure of his intentions by signing a 5 years Contract and it's probably because MoPo was one of the reason to sign a long deal, Luke knows MoPo influence of bringing in the Latin way of bonding like one big family and all be friends helps the Club and also MoPo and his Staff are
teaching the Players and making them better Players, Fonte at 30 years old admitted this after Tuesdays Game at Hull so it proves sometimes you can make a Horse drink water. COYR win against the bogey side Saturday and win the Cup please

I know the facts of football, but the most difficult one to accept is that 4 or 5 clubs see it as their divine right to sign any footballer they fancy, just because they have the money and, of course, can offer what are obscene contracts, eg Rooney on £250,000 a week, apparently! Consequently, whilst this continues it also follows that it is unlikely any club not in the top group will ever be able to advance and win very much.

So, Saints' fans really need to hope that MoPo can be persuaded to stay and that the owners decide to continue to hold on to our playing assets.

Then we can all say that the future is truly bright! I hope I am not not being too starry-eyed.

Up the Saints and well done, again, on Tuesday.
