Martina excited about FC Twente reunion

By SFC Media time Tue 26 Jul Club

Southampton defender Cuco Martina is looking forward to a reunion with some of his former FC Twente teammates, when the teams face each other tomorrow.

Saints take on the Eredivisie side in the second match of their pre-season tour to Holland, with the game being held at the Q20 Stadium, in Oldenzaal (6pm BST).

Martina was with Twente for two seasons, before moving to St Mary's last year, and the prospect of coming up against his former club is one that excites him.

"I'm looking forward to it a lot, to play against my old team of course, and to see my old teammates and the staff, the people around the club – I'm very happy to see them again," he told Southampton's official YouTube channel.

"I enjoyed it a lot. It was two great years. I remember I came there as a young kid, young guy and I needed to learn a lot, of course. I remember the coach, Alfred Schreuder, and the club gave me a great chance and they made me a big man out there."
