Southampton hero De Ridder: Three years ago I was playing in Dutch Second Division!

Southampton winger Steve De Ridder is pinching himself over their Premier League promotion.

The Belgian has spent much of his career in the lower divisions of Holland and Belgium.

"Three years ago I played in the second division in the Netherlands and now I'm going to the Premier League.

"Can I believe this? I have to, but it still has to sink in. I have not seen the pictures, we have not had time. But it was a fantastic party. 30,000 people on the field."
