Artur Boruc: Working hard to impress

Artur Boruc: Working hard to impress

The 33-year-old goalkeeper secured a point for the Saints at Norwich on Saturday with a stoppage-time penalty save from Grant Holt.

The celebrations contrast with the criticism earlier in the campaign when Boruc was said to have thrown a water bottle into the crowd after being barracked following an error against Tottenham.

Boruc, signed on a free transfer after leaving Fiorentina in September, is out of contract in the summer, but remains relaxed about his long-term future

"I will leave it to my agent and the club," he said. "I am just doing my best and I'm working hard, so we will see what is going to happen."

Southampton's draw edges them further towards Premier League safety after a disappointing home defeat to bottom-club QPR last time out.

"It's always important not to lose," added the Poland international. "We are working hard and I think we have shown in the last couple of games that we can play good football.

"We don't look like a team who should be relegated and that's the main thing. We are quite confident. I think it's a matter of time and we are going to grab points."

Southampton coach Mauricio Pochettino, who replaced Nigel Adkins in January, believes Boruc has earned his second chance at the club.

"We should focus on Boruc's save at the end of the game because basically it meant one point for us," said the Argentinian coach. "We all have something that we have done in the past.

"At Southampton today we have three very good goalkeepers. Artur and Kelvin (Davis) have shown that they have experience and we have a young keeper in Pablo (Gazzaniga)."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
