Dušan Tadić aptly sums up the emotion after securing Premier League survival in the final week of the season, namely with the crucial midweek success over Swansea.

Mark Hughes's men succumbed to a last minute winner against Man City on the final day, but ultimately the result was academic, given Saints' superior points tally and goal difference.

The Serb commended the togetherness surrounding the team in the past few weeks - from dressing room, to management and supporters - and after graciously praising the champions, explains how the club-wide unity got Saints over the line.

"It's been strange, a very difficult season but finally we are happy," he exclaims.

I never thought we'd be in this kind of situation and a big relief for everyone, for our club, and for the love of southampton.

"I never thought we'd be in this kind of situation and a big relief for everyone, for our club, and for the love of Southampton. I hope we are never again in this kind of situation.

"We know that City are the strongest team in the league and we tried to play a little bit more defensive, not allowing them space, because they are so dangerous.

"But we also had a few chances. What was most important is we stay in the league. Also maybe City deserve to have 100 points, and I'm happy for them.

"Mainly I'm happy for our supporters and everyone at Southampton!"
