Ronald Koeman tweets picture from Southampton training ground - with not a single player in sight
St Mary's exodus looks set to continue
Ronald Koeman either sees the funny side of the Southampton exodus or failed to notice the irony of his training ground tweet.
With Southampton players leaving the club in their droves, the latest of which saw Dejan Lovrens move to Liverpool in a £20m deal, the new Saints manager tweeted a picture from the club's Staplewoord training ground - without a single player in sight.
The picture was accompanied with the words "Ready for #Training!".
The lack of players at Southampton must be becoming a serious concern for the Dutchman, who replaced Mauricio Pochettino who left for Tottenham.
Liverpool have also snatched Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana from St Mary's, Luke Shaw left for Manchester United and Calum Chambers is on the verge of joining Arsenal.

At least Koeman can point to strong pre-season form with four victories from four, including most recently a 1-0 win over Bournemouth. Southampton start the season away against Liverpool.
