Southampton signing Pablo Daniel Osvaldo is excited about his move from AS Roma.

In joining the Saints, Osvaldo will be re-united with his former Coach at Espanyol - Mauricio Pochettino.

"He's magnificent," the former Fiorentina player said. "It's fantastic, great to work with him.

"He is a great motivator and for me it's very important to work with people who appreciate and respect how I work. For many years people haven't appreciated that.

"I know him well and how he sets out his teams. The season I had at Espanyol was my best as a footballer. In a personal sense, I think I did well playing under him.

"I want to repeat that and improve it. I'm confident that will happen and I can't wait to start."
