Ronald Koeman tweets picture of empty Southampton training ground

Is Southampton manager Ronald Koeman making a point after tweeting picture of an empty Saints training ground?

Ronald Koeman has taken to Twitter to post a picture of an empty Southampton training ground following Dejan Lovren’s £20m move to Liverpool.

The new Southampton manager had been adamant that the Croatia international would not be leaving the south coast club despite the Reds’s interest.

Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana had already moved Liverpool in deals worth a combined £27m this summer, whilst Luke Shaw joined Manchester United in a £27m deal.

However, Lovren penned a long-term deal with the Reds on Sunday, whilst Southampton youngster Calum Chambers is expected to seal a £16m switch to Arsenal.

Whether Koeman was attempting to make a point to the Southampton board or simply enthusiastic about first-team training on Monday morning, the Saints’s training ground showed no signs of life following the exodus.

It prompted the following response from Southampton legend Mick Channon.
