Southampton boss cools talk of Europa League qualification

Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino has cooled talk of qualifying for the Europa League this season. A sixth-place finish would be enough for Europa League qualification and Pochettino believes the Saints face a battle to claim such a lofty finish.

"For Southampton it would be a great success to be in the Europa League," said Pochettino.

"Personally I prefer to play Champions League which is a better competition.

"But for Southampton it would be a wonderful success, it's going to be a difficult goal to achieve, but it would be welcomed and a great success for the players."
