Ronald Koeman thinks Shane Long has proved his worth to Southampton this season after his 12m pounds price tag raised a few eyebrows.
The striker has impressed since joining Saints and Koeman told the Daily Echo:
“We always are analysing new players and why we’re interested in them.
“Of course, it’s also about money because everybody knows that we can’t spend much more than 12m pounds for one player. He was an expensive player, I agree at that time, but I think we did our job very good. He’s now showing that money wasn’t too much for Shane Long.”
