Svensson to stay at Saints

The absence of influential defender Michael Svensson has been pinpointed by many fans as one of the main reasons for Southampton's relegation from the Premiership in the 2004/2005 season.

So, it will come as a huge relief to fans that Svensson has signed a contract extension until 2007.

The 30 year old defender is now nearing the end of his rehabilitation from a recurring knee injury and is looking forward to next season.

Svensson told the club's official website: -
'I'm very grateful to the chairman and the manager to have been given this chance.'


'The chairman has been really good to me - when you have been injured for as long as I have you are not expecting anything, so to have signed an extension was a huge relief. '


'It's a year as well which is really good and hopefully next year I can repay them.'

Saints fans will be hoping that Svensson will be able to discover his fine form of recent years and lead Saints back to the Premiership next season.
