Midfielder explains why he left Chelsea to make St Mary's move


Ex Chelsea midfielder Oriol Romeu says he joined Southampton to work with manager Ronald Koeman.

He spent the past two seasons on loan at Stuttgart and Valencia.

The Saints paid £5m to secure the services of the Spaniard, who joined Chelsea in the summer of 2011 from Barcelona.

"I think it's good to have a coach who wants to play football and do the right things," Romeu told Southampton's official YouTube channel.

"When I spoke with him, he more or less told me exactly what I was looking for and the style of play I've been looking for.

"The style from the Barcelona academy is one I feel very comfortable with. I think it's the best one to reach the team goals in the long term.

"That's what I was looking for when I came here - a coach like him who can teach me a lot. He knows life as a player, and it will be very good for me to work under Ronald Koeman."
