Adkins' pride at Ox

Published Add your comment

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins is proud of the way Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is developing but warned the winger that he and his Arsenal team-mates face a tough test at St Mary's.

The 19-year-old is a graduate of the south coast club's academy system, following in the footsteps of players like Gareth Bale and Theo Walcott. Oxlade-Chamberlain made his name under the tutorship of Adkins, helping Saints secure automatic promotion from npower League One in 2011.

"I think he will get a fantastic reception," the Saints boss said. "He is one of the players that came through our system."
