Chelsea star David Luiz has revealed that he and his team-mates are aiming to win the Europa League following their Champions League exit.
The Blues beat Nordsjaelland 6-1 in their final match in the competition but Juventus’ 1-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk meant Rafa Benitez’s men finished third in Group E.
And, as Chelsea drop in to the Europa League, Luiz is adamant that the club will go all out to win the competition.
He said: “I look now to the Europa League like the Champions League. It’s glamorous for me because I don’t have this title, so I want to win it.
“We won the Champions League last season and this season you go out in the group, it’s a little bit sad but at the end of the day we’re looking at another competition for the future.”
And team-mate Cesar Azpilicueta echoed his sentiments, adding: “It’s true that it is not the Champions League but it’s a big trophy in Europe. Everyone wants to win and we need to keep our ambition to win this trophy.
“We are qualified for this tournament so we are going to win games and going to win the trophy.”
