Alex Iwobi has said winning the UEFA Europa League could well be the high point of the season for Arsenal.
Arsenal Thursday night moved closer to reaching the final of the Europa League after they beat Valencia 3-1 in the semifinal first leg.
“We are ready to win the Europa League to make it the high point of the season,” Iwobi told Arsenal TV in an interview monitored by SportsRation.
“It’s going to be quite historic because the club is yet to win the trophy and that will make the team to play in the UEFA champions league next season.
“We have to finish the job in Spain and hope to play in the final.”
Last season, Arsenal crashed out in the semifinal of the same competition to another Spanish club, Atletico Madrid.
“We were unlucky to lose to Atletico Madrid in the semifinal last season,” Iwobi said.
“So, we will be careful now not to get distracted with the first leg result against Valencia.”
