Southampton boss hails dangerous attacking trio Tadic, Mane, Long

Southampton boss Ronald Koeman hailed his attacking trio of Dusan Tadic, Sadio Mane and Shane Long for their performances in the 4-2 win over Manchester City on Sunday.

Long opened the scoring for the Saints before Mane scored a hat-trick to complete a stunning victory for the Saints.

Tadic was a constant nuisance for City's defence as he provided three assists in the game and the threesome received high praise from their boss.

"We have a lot of competition in our forwards and I think the three players up front did an amazing job today," Koeman told Sky Sports.

"Sadio, Shane Long and Dusan Tadic... I think it was the key to make it very difficult for City's defenders.

"Dusan is a type of player where if he gets some freedom, he's dangerous. He sees the options to give at the right moments, that's one of his big qualities."
