The return of Premier League football to St Mary’s means the return of the matchday programme for Southampton’s clash with Leeds United this weekend.

The popular publication, which sold out across Saints’ two pre-season friendlies, is sure to be in high demand again as the first full 68-page edition of the sale is unveiled.

French defender Romain Perraud is the star of the traditional feature interview, as he discusses a disjointed summer battling injury, the influx of French-speaking players to the club, and the unique feeling of walking out of the St Mary’s tunnel on matchday.
