Southampton midfielder Hojbjerg: First Hughes week has been...

Southampton midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is happy with their first under the charge of Mark Hughes.

Hughes took over from Mauricio Pellegrino last week and immediately went about upping the intensity on the training pitch and demanding more work from the squad.

After their FA Cup win over Wigan, Hojbjerg said: “I think I speak on everyone's behalf when it's been positive and he has given energy and good vibes, a new fresh start.

“He worked a lot on intensity and the discipline and desire to take the extra meters, to do what we have to do as a team and an individual in our own position and the basics.

“I am looking forward to working more with him and his assistants.

“Like we have said many times we have a really good team, some really good players, and maybe this is the perfect fit. Nothing is perfect in this world but this is a good start."
