Southampton

Gunn content with Saints performances

16th April 2019, 15:10 by Tom Hill

Southampton's Angus Gunn says he is loving life at on the south coast after establishing himself as the club's first choice goalkeeper.

The Norwich-born stopper had to be patient following his move from Manchester City last summer.

Gunn, who enjoyed a successful loan spell at Norwich last season, joined Southampton on a five-year deal after the Saints paid £13.5million for his services.

He did not make his Premier League debut for the club until January but he has since started the last seven league games under coach Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Gunn claims he is loving the competition for places and he is eager to push on as the Saints try to confirm their place in the top flight for next season.

"It's been a good first season so far, frustrating at times, but you need that in football to keep you going," he told the club's official website.

"It's a really good environment to work in. We bounce off each other in training, everyone's supporting each other.

"I'm sure I'll look back on this spell at the end of the season and be proud of it but you need to try and stay in the moment while it's happening.

"If we keep going the way we are and repeating the big performances we've had then we have a great chance of finishing higher up the table."
