Retired Jaidi takes new role
Radhi Jaidi is to take up an overseas development role with Southampton after confirming his retirement from football.
The 36-year-old Tunisian defender has decided to hang up his boots and will now step into the newly-created position to help the club build links in Africa.
"I can help find the club talent from all round the world, especially in Africa where there are a lot of talented and quality players," said Jaidi.
"We just need to show them the way and I think the Southampton way is one of the best in the Premier League, which I think will be really interesting to African players.
"It's kind of like I'm giving back to my country as well as to Southampton, it's a really good thing to do.
"I was looking at what to do without staying in Southampton but when the opportunity came up I thought 'why not'?"
