“There’s Arsenal who at the moment have an advantage and then there’s United.
“If you ask me about the past, about our possibility of reaching a place in the Champions League, I could say that it would be very, very, very difficult.
“Now, after five months, I see a big improvement in my team and we have to fight until the end.
The Italian insisted his team still had a chance and urged them to fight until the end
“We have the possibility to achieve this goal and it is important to have this type of ambition and to push ourselves for this goal.
“Playing in the Champions League next season is important for me, the club, the players, the fans. Everyone.
“Because playing the Champions League is totally different from the Europa League or the Europa Conference League or not playing in UEFA competition.
“He’s an important target for many reasons, for the club, because for sure you can play important things.”
