Guido Carrillo delighted with Southampton move

Guido Carrillo is delighted with his move to Southampton.

The former Monaco striker signed for the Saints this week.

Carrillo is happy to be playing for Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino said, “I know him very well, I know his quality as a person and as a coach. His presence here was important in me taking this decision.

“I obviously know the coaching staff, I've worked with them in Argentina and I also spoke with some players who were former teammates in Argentina who are now playing in the Premier League and they told me all about the club and gave it a shining reference.

“Therefore, I had no doubts when I took the decision."

Another fellow Argentine, Swansea City's Federico Fernandez, helped to seal the deal.

“I also spoke with Fernandez at Swansea who I know from youth football and Estudiantes. He gave me a great recommendation about the club and he said the weather is a little bit better than where he is."
