Ghanaian defender, Mohammed Salisu has spoken highly of his manager at Southampton, Ralph Hasenhuttl.

The youngster has been working under the manager for two years now and says it has been a good experience.

According to Salisu, the Austrian tactician has helped him a lot since leaving Spain to sign for the English Premier League outfit.

"So far the season is going on well and I hope everything continues like this," Salisu said when asked about the influence of Hasenhuttl.

"I think it's very important as a young central defender to get more minutes in the Premier League. I am very happy.

"I think I have learned a lot and I have been studying what the manager wants and I have always been watching the games and looking at what he wants,” Mohammed Salisu said.

The 22-year-old defender added, “That makes it easier for me when I started playing.

"He has been a good manager. Since I came here, he has been good to me.

“I remember before I came here, we spoke. He told me he needed me in the team and that I was a long project, how I was a young central defender, I needed to do what I was doing and I would get more minutes to play."

This season, the Ghanaian has become a key player for Ralph Hasenhuttl after putting up top performances for the Saints.

Salisu is in line for a starting role this weekend when Southampton takes on Liverpool.
