Two Chelsea academy products are making their mark at Southampton under Ralph Hasenhuttl.
The Saints signed up Tino Livramento from Chelsea on a permanent deal during the summer, while Armando Broja was signed on a season-long loan deal.
Broja has scored two goals in two starts for Southampton in the Premier League, and Livramento who is a key player for the Saints has hailed the impact of Broja.
“He had to wait a little bit, he was patient, working hard in training,” Livramento told the Daily Echo, “but he learnt.
“I’ve known him since the age of nine, I know what he is about and I knew that when he got the opportunity he would take it.”
He continued: “I’m looking forward to continuing to link up with him when we can and helping the team to more points.
“I’m really happy for him that he’s showing it on the biggest stages. It’s a bit surreal, both having grown up at Chelsea, in the youth groups together.
“As soon as I saw him coming on loan here I knew it was going to be great to play together and I’m just enjoying, like he is, every minute.”
