Davis hails Koeman impact at Southampton

Southampton midfielder Steven Davis has hailed the impact of manager Ronald Koeman this season.

Saints are into the Capital One Cup quarterfinals after victory over Stoke City last night.

"We're going into the games with confidence because of the run we've been on," Davis told talkSPORT

"The players we've brought in have a lot of quality. He's [Koeman] got us organised, everybody knows their job. He's a calming influence and everyone's enjoying playing under him.

"At the end of the season we kind of knew one or two might leave but maybe not the numbers that did.

"It was a big period for the club but to be fair the board, and the manager that has come in, they've done a fantastic job in recruiting these players and they have got some real quality in."
