Southampton's Jason Puncheon: 'Adkins Could Keep Reading Up'

Southampton star Jason Puncheon has had a curious career. Up until this season the 26-year-old winger from Croydon had played for 10 separate clubs in as many years but this term something has clicked and he has made a name for himself scoring important goals in big games. Chelsea and Manchester City have both dropped points thanks to Jason’s sucker punch. So what changed? How has this young player turned himself from sinner to saint? And more importantly would he ever consider wearing jeggings? Topman Generation asks the questions…

Punch on Southampton vs Reading

Topman Generation: Former Southampton boss Nigel Adkins is now managing Reading who you play this weekend – is that going to be weird?

Jason Puncheon: It’s Nigel’s first home game in charge and it will be weird seeing him in the opposition dugout and it gives the game that extra edge. I haven’t spoken to him since he left but it’s always hard when anybody leaves, it’s upsetting if it’s a player or a manager, but this is football you have got to get on with it and look forward.

Topman Generation: Are you worried that he’ll know how to exploit the team’s weaknesses?

Jason Puncheon: I don’t think we have many weaknesses; we are improving with every game.

Topman Generation: What do you think he’ll be saying to the Reading players before the game and do you think he can keep them up?

Jason Puncheon: Nigel has a strong belief on how he wants to play and will pass that on very quickly. It’s possible that he could keep them up - a strong belief in each other will only help their cause.
