Joe Aribo admits it was difficult for him to let go of European football to join Southampton.
Aribo helped Rangers to qualify for this season’s UEFA Champions League, but left to join for Premier League side Southampton.
The Super Eagles midfielder in an interview with Southampton’s website revealed, the Champions League and Premier League are a dream for him.
“It’s a dream for me too, of course, play Champions League, but I am also living my dream playing in the Premier League, so it’s either or.
“I couldn’t have both at the time, so I think for me it’s a very good decision.”
Southampton are just above the bottom three as they’re struggling to get positive results.
They’ve won just three of their 13 Premier League matches and sit in 17th place in the table, separated from the relegation places by just one point.
They’ve won just once in eight games since the end of August, results haven’t always looked disastrous.
“It’s one that I’m not surprised about. I know the Prem wasn’t going to be an easy task.
“Playing against teams, you could see the shift in quality in every single team. Every team has got quality.
“Some results haven’t been the best but we are still growing, we are still learning and I think as a team we are going to come through,” Aribo said.
