Southampton boss Pellegrino: We need to forget Van Dijk

Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino insists the sale of Virgil van Dijk didn't influence defeat to Crystal Palace last night.

After the reverse, Pellegrino was asked if the departure of Van Dijk to Liverpool affected the performance.

He replied: "I don't want to talk about one player who is not here. Everyone is responsible. Not to blame any one person, everyone is part of this context.

"I don't want to say this affect performance on the pitch. The decision, I think we have to analyse it.

"In six months' time we have to wait and see."
