Southampton captain Pierre-Emile Højbjerg is the star attraction of this weekend’s matchday programme as SAINTS returns for the visit of Tottenham Hotspur to St Mary’s.
The 23-year-old midfielder features on the front cover, and talks at length in a ten-page feature interview about how he must channel his passionate nature to reach his potential.
A popular figure with Saints supporters, Højbjerg discusses his fierce desire to keep improving, and explains how his ultra-focused mindset can help him reach the very top of the game.
Elsewhere, Yan Valery pens the latest column from the dressing room, as he reflects on a day to remember at Old Trafford in spite of a painful result for the team.
Callum Watts is the latest youngster to tackle our 20-question Academy feature, while we go back in time with one of the club’s most celebrated graduates, revealing Luke Shaw’s questionnaire as a Staplewood scholar in the week the England international reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
There is something for all ages, as our history section includes a nod to our successful signings from Finland and Denmark in years gone by, as well as some of Saints’ best memories from previous meetings with Tottenham.
There are the usual eight pages of quizzes and games to keep our younger supporters entertained before kick-off and during the half-time break – just don’t forget a pen to fill in the answers!
