Arsenal full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner is aiming for Europa League glory with the Norht London club this term and says that the side won’t rest on their morales in the competition, according to the Dailly Maily reports.
The Switherland national captain has said that the Norht London club are keen to win the Europa League this campaign and regain their place in the Champions League for next campaign after an explosive night of Champions League football.
The Gunners get their Europa League season underway on Thursday night against Ukranian side Vorskla Poltava.
“I am hungry to get back to the Champions League.
“But it is a long way and we have two chances – the Europa League and the Premier League. We want to try as I am sure we want to play Champions League next year
“To come back to the glamour games you need to win first the other games. Now we are in the situation that we are playing Europa League and we will try to win that so hopefully next year we can speak about the Champions League.
“One thing I learned with Juventus is to have respect for each competition. In the last four or five years with Juventus, we tried to play for all the titles, for all the trophies.
“While the Italian Cup wasn’t that important beforehand, we started to play for it with the best team possible. I think in football you have to respect all the trophies.
“Of course the Champions League is a more glamorous title, but the Europa League is a really good chance for the team, for the club and all the players to win this nice trophy.”
