He is currently on loan at Royal Antwerp.
The defender told Sport/Foot Magazine: “I'm still under contract [at Southampton], so I don't want to say anything bad but, since the start, he told me I wouldn't play.
“I asked him many times why, but I never got an answer. This season, I was the best in nearly every test.
“He told me he wanted to give me a second chance, but I was never given one to begin with.
“I trained hard for six weeks, but nothing. After a talk, I decided to prove my worth elsewhere."
