Southampton’s Emmanuel Mayuka

CHIPOLOPOLO striker Emmanuel Mayuka says his situation is improving at his club Southampton as he has started receiving some game time.
Mayuka posted on his facebook page that he would continue working hard to earn a starting place in the team.
“For the third week in a row, I got some playing time. My situation is improving but I’m not taking anything for granted. It is hard work everyday for me,” Mayuka twitted.
Mayuka was an 89th substitute in a 0-0 draw against Swansea before coming  in as a 69th minute replacement in a 3-0 defeat against Westbrom and was again a 65th minute substitute in a 1-0 loss to Tottenham.
Mayuka said he was disappointed to have lost the game against Tottenham over the weekend adding that his team deserved something out of the game.
He said the team was not safe as it was still fighting to avoid relegation.
“A very disappointing result against Spurs this week-end. I believe we deserved at least a point out of this game. We conceded a very late goal to Tottenham which was enough for them to win the game,” Mayuka said.
“We’re still not out of the relegation fight and we have a huge game coming up next Sunday away to Sunderland.”
Southampton is lying 14 on the Barclays Premier League table with 39 points four points above the dog fight.
Mayuka’s manager Nir Karim dashed media reports that the player was among those lined up by the club to be offloaded at the end of the season.
Karim said he had asked Southampton coach Maurio Pochettino to give Mayuka more game time.
The former Young Boys and Kabwe Warriors striker has struggled to win a place in the starting line up at Southampton since his move last season.
