Vedran Corluka training 0708

mcfc.co.uk caught up with Vedran Corluka as he reflected on his first season in England and despite defeat to Fulham last weekend the Croatian defender is refusing to rule out the Blues’ slim hopes of finishing the season with a place in Europe.

Asked if he thought a UEFA Cup place was still a possibility, the 22-year-old said: “I don’t know. For us it’s most important to win as many games as we can and then we’ll see if that’s enough for a place in Europe.

“We want to play in Europe next year, but it doesn’t just depend on us, but we must win the next two games.”

And whether the season ends with a European berth or not, Corluka still believes the season must go down as a success.

He added: “I think we’ve done well this season and when you compare it to last season you can see the big difference.

“This year I’ve learnt lots from the matches in England and I can learn for next year and I think I will be better next season.”

So how has the former Dinamo Zagreb man viewed his debut season in the Barclays Premier League?

“I’ve enjoyed it very much because it was my first season in England and it has been something new for me.

“I think for a first season it was good and I’m happy that I chose this Club.

“Now I just want to show everybody that I deserve to be here in England and the best league in the world.”
