Manolo Gabbiadini has been one of the best signings in recent memory in the Premier League. The Italian striker sealed a switch from Napoli on transfer deadline day, and he hasn’t looked back. He’s scored six goals already in just four matches, and he should have had a hat trick at Wembley.
And the former Napoli man has made his happiness over the move very clear when speaking to Sky Sport Italia. Gabbiadini said, “I’ve completely changed my football.” He said then said “When I left, I told myself that I needed to start afresh and prove to myself that I could still play well.”
And play well he has. Gabbiadini has brought Southampton a cutting edge that they have lacked since Charlie Austin was injured months ago. They’d poked and prodded along the last few months thanks to brilliant defensive displays. But now they have a real chance to win games thanks to clever runs and great finishing from this man.
As a result of his play, the Saints have suddenly become a threat to score at any time. They certainly need that now that they are letting in more goals. But for the time being, they’ll just be glad that they were able to win a match in which they let in three goals!
