Southgate cool on Viduka

08 Apr 2007 - 07:44:06

Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate said he was relaxed about contract talks with Mark Viduka after the striker netted twice in the 4-1 thrashing of rock-bottom Watford.

Thirty-one-year-old Viduka, who is out of contract this summer, took his season's tally with a brace against the Hornets and Southgate remains hopeful that an agreement can be reached with the Australian.

Southgate said: "Talks are ongoing and Mark is having a think about things. I am very relaxed about it.

"He knows my position on it and I respect the fact that he wants time to think about things.

"He has said he is enjoying his football, which I think he is. When you are as close to the end of a contract as he is, you have got lots of different things to think about.

"It is a situation I am very, very comfortable with and we will just have to see what develops."
