BBC Sport - Ralph Krueger: Southampton chairman believes club have progressed again this season

Saints season 'another year of progress'

Southampton chairman Ralph Krueger says no decision will be made on the future of manager Claude Puel until the end of the season.

Saints can finish as high as eighth in the Premier League and secure a fourth-successive top half performance with a win against Stoke on Sunday.

Despite criticism of the style of play under Frenchman Puel, Krueger feels the club have "taken another step forward this season".

"I like the hunger of fans, we're here to build a competitive club that reaches into Europe," he told BBC South Today.
