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