Werder Bremen chief backing Elia to be Southampton smash hit

Werder Bremen's sporting director Thomas Eichin is backing Eljero Elia for success at Southampton.

The Dutch winger has joined Saints on-loan for the remainder of the season.

"His love for one-on-one situations makes him a player suited to English football," Eichin told Voetbal International.

"He will get his opportunities. I believe we are going to hear a lot about Elia and Southampton will eventually buy him in the summer.

"If that happens then everybody will be happy."
