After dropping out of the Champions League, the Nerazzurri will face Ludogorets in the final 32 of the competition.
Zanetti said, “We want to be leading lights because we always want to do well in Europe.
“We are sorry to exit the Champions League, now we must concentrate on this tournament, which is equally important.
“It becomes an objective. We prepared the group well [for the Champions League], but the pitch said we weren't ready.
“Let's remember that this is the beginning of a journey where we are doing good things.
“There's always time to improve some things."
