Southampton midfielder Romeu blasts Everton boss Koeman

Southampton midfielder Oriol Romeu has blasted Everton boss Ronald Koeman.

Romeu insists the Saints stars prefer Claude Puel's style and have found sessions more enjoyable under the former Nice chief.

He said: “Koeman wanted to play from the back and if there was any risk he wouldn't want us to take the risk.

“Nowadays we are just trying to help each other and trying to get that ball from the back.

“We might lose more balls in that dangerous area but then we have more numbers in the box and we go up and down like a block.

“In the time we will do better. This time we enjoy it more and are more confident."
