Honda not content with CSKA Moscow’s Champions League qualification

CSKA Moscow’s qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League is not enough according to star attacker Keisuke Honda.

The Japan international netted in the 3-1 win over derby rivals Spartak Moscow on Saturday to allow his side to stitch up second position on the Russian Premier League table which will see them compete in Europe’s premier club competition next term.

But Honda says that CSKA are yet to achieve perfection and he will not be content until they do.

“I feel good and I'm a little happy, of course not completely because we could have become champions. We played well and got a crucial victory over Spartak, this always gives positive emotions," Honda told CSKA’s official website.

"There is no limit to perfection and we continue to grow and improve our game, we work hard. I can say I am happy for the outcome of the match. We achieved an impressive result after going down to ten and we didn't give up.

"We all showed character, that is the distinguishing feature of our team. We are all tough and determined. I am very happy to have scored a crucial goal and my emotions overflowed.”
