Arsenal fullback Bellerin: We must win Europa League for Champions League qualification

Arsenal fullback Hector Bellerin admits winning the Europa League could be crucial to the club's future this season.

The competition will be a come-down after the north Londoners' 20 successive years in the Champions League and it is one they could easily sacrifice to focus on bigger priorities — such as the Premier League.

But right-back Bellerin sounded more interested in emulating Manchester United's triumph in the competition last season when said: “The Europa League is a very important competition for us.

“We know that if we have the possibility of winning it, we will return to the Champions League next year, which is one of our targets."
