Arteta: Arsenal needs to play in Europe


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admits that his team must be playing European football.

The Gunners are desperate to finish in the Champions League places.

While they are behind a number of clubs in the Premier League, they know anything is possible with a run of wins.

And even a Europa League place in the league would be better than missing Europe altogether.

 “It’s clear that it’s not in our hands. The only thing we can do is win as many games as possible and see what happens but at the moment it’s not in our hands,” Arteta told reporters.

“If it was 15 games it would have been much easier but it’s the situation we have and we will try until the end.

“If we are able to do that on the last day, I think we would have done really well to give ourselves a chance. But again, it doesn’t depend on us at the moment, the only thing we can control is our performances and the better they are and the better we play, the bigger chances we have to win the game.

“This club has to play in Europe and this club has to play in the Champions League. If we don’t don’t have the choice to do that, it’s better to play in Europe than not to, that’s my opinion.”
