Arsenal midfielder Xhaka: Another Europa League campaign painful

David Luiz of Chelsea and Maurizio Sarri the head coach

"I love the Premier League and I'm lucky I'm at Chelsea but at the end of each season you have to sit down and talk".

Another defeat in a European final and another year without Champions League football.

After the game, the 28-year-old shared a series of snaps from the final, including himself with the trophy.

After a goalless first half, Unai Emery's side capitulated in the second period as goals from Olivier Giroud, Pedro and an Eden Hazard brace sealed victory for Chelsea.

"I think today was a big chance for us, we didn't take it". "I think it is a goodbye, but in football you never know", Hazard told BT Sport after the game.

Sarri's future at Chelsea is in doubt despite a third-placed Premier League finish and a Europa League win. He's got to be given time to do that but he also needs the quality of player to do that.

"It's about the mentality of changing that around, they've not been good without the ball for years now".

"I have to speak to my club".

"I knew. I knew Eden wanted to leave, of course, but as I said in every press conference, I wanted to respect his decision", said Sarri.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka admits missing Champions League qualification is a frustrating blow.

"I know he says he doesn't really mind about it but deep down, believe me, he does".

The Belgian playmaker has always been linked with a move to Real Madrid as his contract nears expiry in the summer of 2020, and is widely expected to depart the London club for Spain at the end of this season.

"You know very well that I love the Premier League, the level of the competition".

"Then in a couple of days we will decide, but I have a contract so at the moment we are talking about nothing".
