Veteran English forward Theo Walcott has been named on the list of the quickest players at Southampton. The former Everton and Arsenal star was mentioned as one of the quickest players in the Southampton squad by Nathan Tella on the Saints YouTube channel. According to him, Theo Walcott is definitely on the list of the top-five quickest players at Southampton.
In a recent video published on the Southampton YouTube channel, Tella and Southampton teammate Mohamed Salisu were featured as the two players were asked various questions. Tella and Salisu were asked to pick who will win a go-karting race from the trio of Che Adams, RomainPerraud and Will Smallbone. In his response to the question, Tella said Perraud would win the race.
Tella said Frenchman Perraud does everything at 100 miles per hour while picking him ahead of Scottish international Adams and Smallbone. He was then asked if French left-back Perraud was one of the quickest players at Southampton. In his response, 22-year-old Tella said Perraud is quick, but he won’t say that the French player is one of the quickest players in the Saints squad and that he’s not in the top-four quickest players at the club. He went on to mention Theo Walcott, himself, TinoLivramento and Adam Armstrong as the quickest players in the Southampton squad.
Of all the four players, only Livramento has been a regular in the Saints starting XI until he picked up a serious knee injury a few weeks ago. Walcott, Armstrong and Tella have not been given an extended run in the Southampton starting XI for months this season by manager Ralph Hassenhuttl thus underlining their status in the team.
For Tella, he has impressed during his limited time in the Saints starting XI just like he did in the recent 2-2 draw at Brighton and Hove Albion.
