Southampton to grant Yoshida longer break

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino is expected to grant Maya Yoshida extra time off this summer.

The Saints and Japan centre half has barely had a breather for approaching three years of non-stop football, and that is likely to continue for another two years at least.

The Daily Echo says he might not return until after the start of pre-season training at Saints if Japan make it to the final stages of the Confederations Cup this month.
