Morgan Schneiderlin has declared that he is now fully focused on Southampton after pushing to leave over the summer.
The France international midfielder was blocked from following for Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino to Tottenham.
The 24-year-old midfielder told L’Equipe: “My objective at the end of last season was to play in the Champions League this term.
“Those are the matches that help you to improve. But playing in the Premier League also allows you to play against Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, and they are big matches also.
“I can’t get annoyed with it. I have to achieve the best possible season at Southampton and keep performing at the same level.
“In my body, I feel better as a footballer. I feel I will go on improving.”
