Man Utd legend Robson: Don't snub Europa League

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson says his old club should chase Europa League qualification.

Manchester United legend Bryan Robson says his old club should chase Europa League qualification.

United fell 12 points behind fourth-placed Arsenal on Tuesday after their 3-0 defeat to Manchester City at Old Trafford.

"We have to try to make sure we finish above Tottenham Hotspur and Everton in the table," said Robson, who made 461 appearances in 13 years at the club.

"We need that safety net of making sure we finish high enough in the Premier League to qualify for Europe.

"In my opinion, people are wrong to dismiss the Europa League.

"It is more or less a merger of the European Cup Winners' Cup and UEFA Cup and I fondly remember beating Barcelona in the 1991 European Cup Winners' Cup final.

"That was a fantastic night and the memory will never leave me. For me, as a former player, it would be a great achievement to win the Europa League."
