In a recent interview with the club’s official website, Southampton attacker Dusan Tadic has revealed how he is striving to continue his improvement on an individual basis as well as with the team.

I’m that kind of person who likes always to improve myself and I think I can play much, much better as well as my team. This is always like that. You try to push yourself much more and I will try to improve further and cause more danger for opponents to make our fans happy.

You want to show your best in every game and in training. You always need to be looking to improve your game to help your team take points.

Tadic is currently away with Serbia on international duty and he’s in a superb patch of form. He managed to get himself on the score sheet against Moldova, as well as setting up two other goals for his teammates, proving to be instrumental in his country’s emphatic 3-0 victory.

It’s been much the same for Tadic at a club level this season, also, as he continues to shine at the tip of the diamond in Southampton’s new system under Claude Puel.

I used to play the number ten role but we now have a lot of players in the middle. We are told that sometimes we need to stretch opponents which means I will have more space on the pitch.

This is really important as I used to play in a 4-2-3-1 system, when you have wingers who stretch opponents which makes it easier for me.

Tadic has created 21 Premier League chances so far this season and appears to be in massively confident mood, which bodes well for when he returns from international duty for yet another busy spell of games with Southampton, starting with Burnley at home next Sunday.
