RALPH Hasenhuttl is taking his Saints side to Tenerife next week.

The club's heading to the largest Canary Island for a rigorous five-day training camp, where the Austrian will put them through their paces.

Not only that Hasenhuttl has also planned another set of individual meetings with his players to review their progress.

Hasenhuttl said: “It’s a very good time for us to look back on the last two months. We’ve spent a lot of time with the guys and invested a lot and I think it’s time to make a review.

“We should take this time to speak to every player again, we’ve prepared a lot of videos for everyone –  nearly 20 minutes for every player.

“You can imagine we can show every player what he’s done well till now and what’s not so good. That will take a lot of time, but it will be perfect there because we can work very hard with everyone.

“We will have a lot of time in better conditions on the pitch. Warm weather helps a lot to train technical things because you have to stand a bit longer on the pitch and you are not afraid someone will catch a cold.

“It’s better to work in those perfect conditions and, after two months, it’s perfect for us to prepare for the rest of the season.”

Saints have been afforded the week away due to them no longer being in the FA Cup after they were knocked out by Derby County at St Mary’s.

And, despite Hasenhuttl still wanting to be in the competition, he admits it’s a great opportunity to make the most of the week without a match at the weekend.

“We would like to still be in the FA Cup, but we’re not, so it’s best to take advantage of the time we have.

“I hope we can develop our game in this week again. We have to.

“I think a win against Cardiff would be perfect for us, then we can go there and be critical of what we haven’t done till now but proud of the points we’ve taken.”
