Jose Fonte: The defender has hailed the Southampton team spirit

The Saints enjoyed a strong return to the top-flight last season, securing a 14th-place finish despite a late run of poor form which saw them go their final six games without a win.

Pochettino has bolstered his ranks with the signings of Dejan Lovren from Lyon and Victor Wanyama from Celtic, and Fonte says they are joining a strong dressing room.

"The spirit in this team is fantastic. I've never been in a group as good as this one, and it's wonderful to be a part of this team," he told Southampton's official website.

"Everyone who comes in gets welcomed by the other lads, and I think they feel at home straight away because everyone in the dressing room is a good person and a good professional above all.

"We always find things to entertain ourselves, so it's been fun. We're here to do a job and push this club forward as a group."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
