Oriol Romeu has hailed the “amazing” contribution of Sam McQueen to the Southampton side in recent weeks.
Romeu just edged out McQueen to the October Player of the Month award, but had high praise for his teammate, who has produced some impressive displays at left-back since being drafted into the team.
“He’s done very well,” said Romeu of the 21-year-old. “He’s been amazing for us. He has handled the pressure extremely well, because it’s not easy when you are starting to play in the first-team and he has done very good.
“I am just very happy for him, because we have seen him training hard since the beginning of the season and now he has got his chance he has taken it and he is doing very well.
“Hopefully he can play some more amazing games and we are going to help him out, of course.”
