Southampton player, Sofiane Boufal has said he never thought about quitting his club during the summer transfer window despite interest from several La Liga and Ligue 1 clubs.
Boufal returned to the south coast in July after his season-long loan at Celta Vigo and AFCON outing ended.
Before leaving Southampton for his loan move, Boufal had a rift with ex-manager Mark Hughes in the second half of the 2017-18 campaign. He was forced to play for the club’s youth team when this happened.
However, he revived his career in La Liga where he netted 3 goals and three assists in 35 games and has now said he is happy to return to Southampton.
His words, “I am very happy to be here. My mindset was to always stay here,”
“I spoke with the club during the summer and told them that I didn’t want to move and that I wanted to stay here.
“I am very motivated and happy to come back. I want to progress at this club and stay here. I want to leave the club through a big door and not a small door.”
On speaking with his manager, “It was a meeting where it was just about his philosophy and what it’s like to play in his team and everything else,”
“I wasn’t nervous [to meet Hasenhuttl] because I was very, very focused on staying here – even if some other club wanted me.
“I didn’t want to move and since the first day, I have been very focused.
“We always need to prove but, yes, I need to prove the most because I left the club not in a good way, so of course I wanted to show people I am here, and I will help you.”
