Cape Town - Mark Hughes is confident Southampton have learned the hard way from their troubled 2017/18 season and will comeback a better team next term.

The Saints boss has be rewarded with a new three-year contract after helping the club avoid the drop and he believes its a motivation for him to improve the situation on the south coast.

Hughes' assistants Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki have also penned new deals.

The Welshman also feels his youthful squad learned a lot from their difficult campaign and will use the experience to be better come August.

"We have a group here that is talented, that has real potential and real growth in the group as well, because they are all still young in terms of years," Hughes said on the club's Twitter feed.

"They will all benefit from what we all went through last year. I think we will learn from that and be better again this year."
