Southampton boss Koeman: ‘Fraser Forster joins as Number 1 keeper’ [Video]
After signing Fraser Forster from Celtic for 10 million pounds, Southampton boss Ronald Koeman has taken the unorthodox move of declaring his new signing as his new number 1 keeper, without so much as seeing him at training for his new team.
Normally, the discourse will be one of ‘the number 1 spot is now up for grabs, open competition etc., but Koeman didn’t beat around the bush, and has even formally informed last season’s number 1 Artur Boruc that he’s now number 2.
‘It’s tough, but that’s football.’
Coincidentally, they’ll have plenty of things in common and stuff to talk about at training, as they’re both now former Celtic keepers.
