Southampton manager Rubén Sellés has said some of the club’s younger players may be involved in Sunday’s visit to Brighton.
With relegation having been confirmed last weekend, Sellés confirmed that some of the focus in the remaining two matches of the season will be on the longer-term future of the team.
“It’s going to be a little bit of everything,” he said. “I will have on the pitch a team that I think can beat Brighton, also [I will consider] some of the things that the team needs to move forward and make the next step.”
The Saints boss explained that highly-rated youngsters Dom Ballard, Kami Doyle and Sam Amo-Ameyaw have all been training with the first-team this week and are three of the young players who could feature at Amex Stadium.
“Potentially yes, they (the young players) have been training with us for the past three weeks and they have been in our training for the whole season,” he said
“As you know it was not easy to have them because it was a big squad, but some of them came with us a lot of times. Dom made his debut this season and during the week Dom Ballard, Kami and Sam Amo have been training with us and potentially they will be involved in the game.”
