Southampton and Italy striker, Pablo Osvaldo, has had considerable help from his new teammates reveals Jose Fonte.

The Saints defender was speaking to the Daily Echo and he opened up about how the team have embraced Osvaldo and have help set him up with everything he and his girlfriend, Jimena Baron, need in order to settle in Southampton.

“We’ve taken care of everything. We’ve taken care of his house, we’ve taken care of his car. He’s finding it really easy, because everyone is a good person in this club." Said Fonte.

"You adapt very quickly and he’s completely settled. He just wants to move into his house."

“He’s still in a hotel, which is not the best, but soon he will move into his house and he will be even more settled.” He added.

The centre-half explained that it is a tradition of sorts for players of the club to help as much as they can, so that they'll find it easier to integrate in the squad.

"We embrace them straight away, because without team spirit and togetherness we’re not going to achieve anything."

"We need to get to know our teammate who comes into the club, make him feel welcome, show him what he wants and what he needs and try and help him so he settles as quick as possible to help us on the pitch."

Although Osvaldo is yet to score for Saints, Fonte remains confident that the former Roma striker will find his form soon enough.

"He’s top class and I’m 100 per cent confident the goals will come."

Osvaldo, who netted a total of 28 times in 57 appearances, for Roma, arrived at St. Mary's for a fee of £12.8million during the summer transfer window, as manager Mauricio Pochettino looks to build on last season's successful campaign.
