Swansea boss Laudrup tells Southampton to forget about top four

Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup feels Southampton should forget about talk of a top four finish.

Laudrup admires their bullishness, but feels Saints should set their sights a little lower.

He said: "It's always good to be ambitious. But, of course, I think there are better teams than that.

"I like the team they have. It's a team who can be in the top ten.

"Those spots - eight, nine and ten - are the maximum for them and us in terms of what we can go for.

"I still believe you have all the big sides. The Manchester clubs, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool and Everton. That's seven.

"In my opinion, the rest of us play for eighth position and down."
