Flo Cuvelier: 'First-Class' Keates Has Walsall Buzzing

Walsall midfielder Florent Cuvelier has spoken ahead of this weekend's clash with bottom-of-the-table Bury and praised recently appointed manager Dean Keates.
Cuvelier, who has made seventeen first-team appearances during another injury-hit campaign, said that the former Saddler has made training sessions fun but is still able to get his message across.

Flo, speaking via the Express & Star, said; "Since the gaffer has come in training has been first-class. He has brought a great atmosphere to the club. His training sessions are great. He wants us to work really hard and be positive and happy. But ultimately he wants us to get the job done.

"The lads are buzzing when it’s training time so that is positive. He wants us to play an attacking style of football which will suit this team and this football club. He wants us to play at a high tempo. He doesn’t want us taking too many risks. But he does want us to get crosses into the box and get chances by expressing ourselves in the final third."

Cuvelier, who started last weekend's clash with Portsmouth, admitted that he was happy to be among Keates' side as the new manager took charge for the first time, he continued; "I was very happy to start. When a new manager comes in it’s a fresh start for everybody.

"Me personally, it has given me a boost of confidence. I enjoy training, I’m working really hard – not just at the training ground but at home as well. Now I’m hoping I can play a major role in helping the team stay in League One."
