Southampton defender Kyle Walker-Peters says Joe Aribo and his fellow new signing Sekou Mara at the Saints have fitted in well.
Aribo marked his first home game for Southampton with a goal in their 2-2 home draw against Leeds United on Saturday.
With the game slipping away Ralph Hasenhüttl turned to new signings Aribo and Sékou Mara from the bench. Both of whom would play in part in earning Saints a point.
The former Rangers star pulled a goal back to make it 2-1 before Walker-Peters equalized to secure his side’s first point of the season.
And commenting on the impact of Aribo in the game, the right-back said on the club’s website:“Sékou came on and got an assist and Joe [Aribo] came on and scored,” Walker-Peters.
“The new guys have fitted in really well; I think as a group we’ve made it easy for them to settle in and that showed today (Saturday).
“It was a great pass from Sékou [Mara]! We caught eye contact for a split second and it was a great pass. Then I was happy I could finish it because I’ve been practising in training.
“We spoke about this all week; it’s a first game at home and we want to put in a display and get the fans behind us.
“When you have that support behind you it gives you that extra gear even when you think you’re knackered!
“When you hear people screaming your name and roaring behind you it does keep you going.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
