Juanfran eyes Champions League spot

9 September 2012 17:38

Atletico Madrid's Juanfran has spoken of the great desire within his team's dressing room to qualify for the Champions League.

The side from the capital have begun their La Liga campaign well, winning and drawing in their first two league games of this term.

Right-back Juanfran, who moved to the Vicente Calderon from Osasuna last year, said they had high ambitions.

"I believe the time is now. We have to be aware and focused that this is the year that Atletico Madrid have to be in the Champions League," he told Mundo Deportivo.

"Clearly La Liga is difficult but Atletico Madrid will be in the top four, of course. Our fans deserve it."

Juanfran has reason to be positive, as he alluded to the great atmosphere surrounding the club.

"We have been having a great last few months at this club. What the players and the management want most is to keep it going," he said.

The European Super Cup winners recently beat Chelsea 4-1 to earn some silverware, and one of the main reasons for the recent success, according to Juanfran, is the firepower provided by Radamel Falcao.

"There's not much I can say about El Tigre (Falcao), apart from the fact he is a great player," Juanfran said.

"Each day he is more and more impressive, which is natural because he is playing one of the most important roles for Atletico."
