Southampton boss Adkins delighted with Gazzaniga Liverpool performance

Southampton boss Nigel Adkins was delighted with Paulo Gazzaniga's performance in defeat at Liverpool.

The Argentine has had some dodgy moments in his first season in the top flight.

But his form against Liverpool showed the potential that tempted Adkins to snap him up from Gillingham.

The Southampton boss said: "We know he can make saves.

"It's the other aspects of a young goalkeeper's development - the decision-making process - that you go through when you're young.

"He's only 20 and, like all our players, he will get the opportunity to go out there and he will make saves but he will also make some mistakes.

"You're only going to get better by being in the situations where you have to make those decisions."
