Cédric is the subject of an in-depth feature interview inside SAINTS as the matchday programme returns for Southampton’s Premier League clash with Wolves at St Mary’s on Saturday.
The Portuguese defender, who is approaching his fifth anniversary as a Saint, speaks on a variety of topics including the club’s recent revival, why he left on loan last season and the prospect of facing lifelong friends in the heat of battle this weekend.
Elsewhere, Stuart Armstrong reflects on scoring his first goal of the season, at Leicester last weekend, as the Scottish midfielder continues to play a key role in Saints’ stunning start to 2020.
Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl pens his usual programme notes, along with legendary former defender Franny Benali, who puts his case forward for Danny Ings to earn an England call-up.
Elsewhere, we remember two former Saints who sadly passed away recently, as club historian David Bull pays tribute to Jimmy Shields and Brian Clifton.
The traditional coverage of our opponents continues, as Sam Tighe explains how Wolves have handled fighting on multiple fronts in just their second season back in the top flight.
There’s something for all ages, with our history section providing a welcome dose of nostalgia, while there’s a host of quizzes and games to keep our younger readers entertained before kick-off and during the half-time break.
Supporters can pick up issue 14 of SAINTS from one of the numerous sellers outside St Mary’s and inside the stadium concourse, priced at £4.
