"We said, 'Okay, this is it, we are not a selling club'. The players have contracts. We don't sell any more players and we will try keep to that," The Metro quotes the manager as saying.
"We sold three players, that's good enough money. Now we will keep the rest and we will continue with what we did last season.
"I know Liverpool have a lot of money and they will spend that money and maybe they want to buy a player from Southampton. But as manager of Southampton I have to do everything to keep those players. The final decision is with the board."
