Arsene Wenger Insists Arsenal Not Interested In The Europa League

Reports have emerged claiming that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has made it clear that he is not thinking about the Europa League as his aim is still to progress in the Champions League.

Tuesday night’s 3-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb guaranteed a minimum of a Europa League place for the Gunners, but Wenger is concentrating on the game against Olympiakos on December 9 which could see them finish second in Group F behind Bayern Munich.

The Frenchman said after the game: “The Europa League is not the target – let us give everything to remain in the Champions League.”

A better result than the 3-2 win, which Olympiakos achieved at Emirates Stadium in September, in the return fixture will ensure the Premier League club’s qualification for the knockout stages.
