Muntari: AC Milan must qualify for Europa League

The Ghanaian midfielder is convinced that the Italian giants, who sit eighth in Serie A, deserve to reach Europe next season despite his club's difficult campaign
AC Milan need to qualify for the Europa League next season, says midfielder Sulley Muntari.

Despite an extremely poor start to the season, the Rossoneri beat arch-rivals Inter 1-0 on Sunday to pull themselves closer to Serie A's European spots with two games left to the season.

And the Ghana international believes that his side deserve to be playing in Europe next term.

"We deserve to go to the Europa League at this point," he told Canale Milan. "It is feasible, though our direct competitors have done well and are having a great season.

"Milan has to go to Europe. Next year we will."

Clarence Seedorf's side will finish the season with games against Atalanta and Sassuolo as they look to secure a European place.
