Koeman impressed with Under Armour deal

By SFC Media time Thu 14 Apr Club

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has expressed his delight at the club's multi-year partnership with Under Armour.

The seven-year deal with the global sports brand, which begins this summer, was announced at St Mary's earlier today.

Speaking to Southampton's official YouTube channel, Koeman said: "I'm very pleased. That shows how the club is growing.

"I think it's an important brand in the world, Under Armour, I think it is a very good combination, and that makes the club even stronger. It's a seven-year deal that's for the long-term, and I think that's a good one."

Koeman was also pleased to see Under Armour's commitment extend beyond the role of a traditional kit supplier, with the company making pledges to provide extensive support in areas such as the academy, Saints Foundation and women's football.

"That's even better, because one is the club, one is the first-team, but everybody knows we have a great academy and around that if you organise that kind of stuff I think it's very good for everybody," said the Saints boss.
