Southampton boss Hasenhuttl excited by Danso potential

Ralph Hasenhuttl thinks Kevin Danso will develop into a great signing for Southampton.

The 20-year-old arrived at St. Mary's on loan from Augsburg and could make his debut against Manchester United on Saturday.

Speaking at a press conference prior to the match, Hasenhuttl said of his compatriot: "I think he showed from the first day when he was here that he knows how to defend. He knows how to play football and, physically, has very good options.

"He is very quick and also good at jumping for the headers. At this age, he is very experienced because he played a lot of games in Germany and I think this signing was a really good one for us.

"This young guy has a lot of potential and we will try to develop him because he is very open-minded and working hard. This is exactly the kind of player we are searching for in our philosophy."
