Schwarzer is adamant that the positives of the Europa League far outweigh the negatives.
â€ś100 per cent,â€ť he told the Western Mail. â€śIâ€™ve had two unbelievable runs in Europe â€“ once in the Uefa Cup at Middlesbrough and once in the Europa League at Fulham â€“ and they are memories youâ€™ll never forget.
â€śFor a club like Swansea it will be an amazing experience if they embrace it and do well.
â€śThe Europa League is what it is and I think youâ€™ve got to make the most of it. Itâ€™s still a European competition.
â€śIs it unrealistic for clubs like Fulham and Swansea â€“ two similar clubs â€“ to finish in the Champions League positions? Possibly.
â€śThe next best thing is the Europa League and itâ€™s a fantastic competition to be involved in if you do as well as we did and go as far as we did."
