PREMIER - Burnley, Cork: "Facing Southampton brings up the best memories"
Ahead of upcoming Premier League away match, which Burnley are going to play against Southampton, 32-year old Clarets midfielder Jack Cork, previously playing for Saints themselves, stated:
“I owe a lot to Southampton, they were the first club I left permanently from Chelsea and we got promotion from the Championship in my first season. That was one of my favourite memories in football. So yes, I owe a lot to the staff, the players and it was great to be part of that team. The manager has done a great job and they lost a few players in the summer, so it must be a tough job. Every year they have a team that is competitive and play good football, so it will be a tough ask for us to go there on Saturday, with the crowd. But it should be a good game.
Obviously it’s a great thing for the club to have someone like Malcolm Jenkins involved. It will help raise the profile of the club in America, as well. There is a bit more excitement now with new people coming in and investing, but on the playing side and around the coaching side, not much has really changed. But I know behind the scenes a lot is going on, and hopefully it will help the club progress in a positive way. To have him in the club and having a good influence, it will be great. So it will lead to exciting times hopefully”.
