Romeu named Player of the Month

By SFC Media time Wed 12 Oct Player of the Month

Oriol Romeu has been voted as Southampton's Under Armour Player of the Month for September.

The midfielder earned 47 per cent of the vote from supporters, triumphing ahead of fellow nominees Charlie Austin, Fraser Forster and Virgil van Dijk.

Romeu was a key component of the side that won four consecutive matches during the month, while also helping them earn a 0-0 draw away to Hapoel Be'er Sheva in the Europa League – with Saints keeping a clean sheet in each of those five games.

“I’m very happy," Romeu told "I think it’s something nice and I’m very happy to get it.

“It tells us that the fans are happy with us, with the players and I think the last results have been very good and everyone now is enjoying it much more.

“We just want to keep them happy and win more games."

Reflecting on the team's excellent run of form in September, Romeu said: "I think we changed the results.

 "The type of play was quite similar at the beginning, but we needed to improve a few details in our game.

 "We got the clean sheets, which is very hard to get, and the team is looking much sharper and much more difficult to beat, and I think that is very good news."
