However Southampton boss revealed that Fonte is now ready to stay at St Mary’s.

“I think the situation with Jose is normal,” Puel said.

“Now Jose has concentrated always on his football and on his team.

“He had a good discussion with the director of football, with the chairman and now it’s okay.

“It was important for the club and for me to keep him in the squad because he has a good personality, he is a good professional and a leader.
“Before the season it is normal to have some different thoughts, but now he is okay.

“It was important to listen to Jose and understand his position.

“We had time to speak and time to play. Now it’s time to play and there is no problem with this.”

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
