Victor Wanyama: Excited about the challenge of playing in the Premier League

Victor Wanyama: Excited about the challenge of playing in the Premier League

Wanyama joined Saints earlier in the summer in a big-money deal after making his name at Celtic as a tough-tackling midfielder.

The 22-year-old feels he has already shown there is more to his game than steel but he is relishing the challenge of trying to impress in English football.

"I like a physical challenge," he told the Daily Mail. 'But every week the Premier League will throw me a new challenge and that is to get better.

"It is the most competitive league and I'm excited about what I am getting into. I want to show I can make a big impact but not just by being physical.

"I think that by competing for Celtic in Europe against teams such as Barcelona, Benfica and Juventus I have shown there's more to my game than that."

Wanyama insists coming to Southampton was a good career move and he believes he can go from strength to strength under Mauricio Pochettino.

"He has been great," said the Kenyan. "I have only been here a short time but already he has taught me a lot. He is a good motivator but knows when to pick out details that can change your game.

"It's nice here. My motto is always to do better and if I didn't think I could achieve that I wouldn't have come. I have belief that I can realise dreams here."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
