SOUTHAMPTON boss Mauricio Pellegrino has confirmed Virgil Van Dijk will miss tomorrow's clash with Swansea.
|I think it was a beautiful goal, one of the most beautiful goals of this season,
said Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino.
I don't think it will be difficult because Virgil is focused 100 percent on our team and is training well,
Pellegrino said. Obviously we cannot control the market and every single transfer window clubs are looking to buy our players.
I don't know him personally but I know how he has been working in the last few seasons with his team, how they are growing,
Mario continues his treatment,
Pellegrino said. I would expect after the international break maybe Mario can train with the team. But Charlie has been training with us this week. He was training well, but it's just Mario that is the only one that is out of the squad.
