New Southampton signing Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg has praised the training methods of the coaching staff on the south coast, telling the club's official website that they complement his style of play. 

The 20 year old Danish international Hojbjerg completed his move from Bayern Munich earlier this week for a reported fee of £12.8 million.

The young midfielder has signed a five year deal with the Saints, and he leaves Munich after spending four years with the club.

During that time he managed just 17 league appearances, whilst spending time on loan at FC Augsburg, and last season, at Schalke 04.

And after his first few days training with his new club, Hojbjerg is pleased with the training methods of new manager Claude Puel's coaching staff at Southampton.

“That’s really good for me. They are really good people. I’m happy to be around all of the players and the coaching staff."
