Our monthly touch of glamour
ONLY European football hipsters and devout Football Manager obsessives had heard of Graziano Pelle before he arrived on the south coast this summer.
The 29-year-old Southampton striker had forged a formidable goal record over the last two seasons in Holland with Feyenoord.
St Mary’s was ground zero in the summer with the club seemingly not able to sell their stars quickly enough.
But new boss Ronald Koeman quietly went about his business and pieced together a squad that’s got the critics chomping on hot humble pie.
Koeman forked out £8.8m for Italian hitman Pelle. He’s proving a huge success already with ten goals in his first 13 games.
His acrobatic strike against Queens Park Rangers in September was a thing of beauty.
Which brings us on to Viktoria Varga. The Hungarian model Pelle gets to call the missus.
