Cuco Martina says he finally “feels more like a Premier League player” after getting a run of games for Southampton.
The 26-year-old has started the last three Saints games at right-back and has made 13 appearances in all competitions now since joining from FC Twente last summer.
Cedric Soares has been his main competition in defence for Ronald Koeman’s side but the Curacao international is delighted he is now featuring in the first team on a regular basis.
He told the Daily Echo: “Every player likes to play and the more games I play here I feel more stronger and if you get more games it feels good.
“I’ve played 13 games and I feel more of a Premier League player now because I play more.”
