Southampton football manger Nathan Jones has spoken about how God’s will helps him in his role.

It hasn’t been an easy ride for the football club, as four straight Premier League defeats have left them at the bottom of the table.

However, on Wednesday 11th January, Southampton beat Manchester City 2 – 0, enabling them to advance to the semi-finals.

Speaking after the triumph, Nathan told Sky News: “I’m not David Blaine, you know what I mean? I understand people’s frustrations but we’re building.

“The cliché is Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was a wonderful Southampton side, but we are on the way. We need time to change the direction, the momentum. It’s tough.”

He continued: “Sometimes you have to take a little of the proverbial, and I’ve had to do that, but I’m clear, I’m strong. A born-again Christian, so God’s will is right there for me and I’m looking forward to the challenge.

“I would like an element of realism elsewhere, and if I get that, and we’re all together, we can do something here. At least I won’t get any abuse on my way home!”
