New Southampton Boss: I’ve told Onuachu what I expected from him

New Southampton boss, Ruben Selles says Nathan Jones’ sacking at Southampton would not have a negative impact on Paul Onuachu and the other January signings that the Welshman brought to the club.

Jones bought Onuachu on transfer deadline day from Belgian side, KRC Genk before he was sacked a forthnight later after he sufferred his seventh Premier League defeat in eight games since he took charge in November.

Saints’ first team coach Selles says there would be no issues with Onuachu and indeed any of the January arrivals following the departure of the man who brought them to the club.

Selles reveals he has already had conversations with Onuachu and other individual members of the squad to make clear what is expected of them.

“With Kamaldeen [Sulemana] and Paul [Onuachu] I have an advantage,” Selles explained to HampshireLive.

“Because Paul played against my team in Denmark [AGF] with FC Midtjylland and Kamaldeen also scored against me a couple of times with Nordsjælland, so it was an easy conversation to have with them about what we expect from them.

“With Nathan in terms of being the person to have picked them up, I think they are incredible players that can make an impact in the Premier League.

“It’s not been difficult. It’s been more task related. So telling them what we need from them and where we see them now and possibly in the future.”
