Morgan Schneiderlin: Southampton midfielder wants to keep progressing

The 23-year-old Frenchman, signed from Strasbourg in 2008, has impressed for Southampton as they battled to stay in the Barclays Premier League and says he wants to keep on improving.

"I am happy because I have improved in every way, but I know that I still have steps to progress," he said.

"This year I have had a good season, but next year I want to be even better. For me, next year is going to be the real thing.

"I want to prove myself to everyone again, and to get even better.

"In football, if you stop improving then you'll automatically go backwards."

Arsenal are reported to be ready to make a £10million summer move for Schneiderlin who recently signed a new contract extension which ties him to Southampton until at least 2017.

The Frenchman added: "I am not going to lie and say that I am not happy that

people are speaking about me and my games, but there is no point in me having a good season and then disappearing the year after.

"The main thing for me is to keep this going and to be able to be better in every game I play.

"I don't like to judge myself - that is down to other people - but I know that I have the capacity to play in the Premier League and I want to spend the rest of my life playing here."

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
