Arsenal playing in Europa League would not be so bad, says Cech

Arsenal playing in Europa League would not be so bad, insists Cech

Petr Cech insists Arsenal should not despair if they are only able to secure Europa League football in 2017-18.
"A European trophy is a European trophy," Cech told reporters after Tuesday's 2-0 victory over relegated Sunderland.
"I have to say you want to have the Champions League one rather than the Europa League one but you can see more and more, big teams are treating the Europa League with respect because it is a European trophy. 
"Now you can qualify for the Champions League too. 
"I have to say it is a fantastic memory for myself to look at the [Europa League] medal. I only played in it once and was fortunate in one go to have won it. 
"But obviously I would rather be in the Champions League, that is for sure. Let's see what will happen."
Cech thinks Arsenal would be making a big mistake worrying about the Liverpool or City games rather than focusing on doing the job against Everton, who will finish the season in seventh position.
"We have a difficult game, let's not forget this first," said the 34-year-old.
"We will concentrate on our game and there is only one thing we can do which is to win and then hope the other results will go our way, which if they don't, they don't. But we need to make sure we win our game.
"I never care about the other results so I am not going to start now."
