Barnes is ready to play in the Europa League with Burnley

during the The Emirates FA Cup Third Round match between Manchester City and Burnley at Etihad Stadium on January 6, 2018 in Manchester, England.

Burnley are very likely to qualify for the Europa League because of their successful  Premier League campaign and Ashley Barnes is certain that he and his teammates will be able to handle it.

It has been always difficult for minor clubs to handle playing in both domestic league and European competitions but Barnes believes that Burnley will be able to deal with this situation which is going to be a new one for them.

The Burnley player spoke about his side’s future as he said, according to Sky Sports:

“Of course it will be difficult but it’s another challenge we will be ready for.”

“It’s going to be another tough season, we have still got two games left this year. Hopefully, we can finish on a high and come back next year ready.”

“We obviously have to qualify for the group stages so it’s going to be difficult but it’s a challenge we look forward to.”

“This has been a fantastic season. If you look at the teams above us, it’s an unbelievable achievement to be behind those six teams.”
