West Brom striker Salomon Rondon dreaming of Europa League at The Hawthorns

West Brom The Hawthorns

The Venezuelan is enjoying his time at West Brom.

West Bromwich Albion have certainly turned things around recently. The club have stretched away from the Premier League bottom three after a fantastic run of form in 2016.

At the moment that good form has taken up the league table, although they suffered a blow at the weekend with a 1-0 loss at home to Norwich City.

The Baggies are now on 39 points, which could have been 42 with a result over the Canaries.

Prior to that game one West Brom player believed that the club might have had a chance of making the Europa League.

West Brom striker Salomon Rondon, who has been in good form for the club recently, told Spanish publication Diario as that the Baggies would not be ruling out a potential Europa League position:

“The distance that separates us from Europa League suggests that it is not crazy to arrive, but we must be aware of the teams we face.

“We focus on the game at a time because the Premier League forces you to do that. We look up and see a tangible goal as the Europa League. If we are close, why not dream of entering.”

Of course that does look a long way off. The Baggies are 11 points behind West Ham and Manchester United with just eight games left to play.

Whilst another space may open up depending on who wins the FA Cup even the most optimistic West Brom fan is unlikely to have eyes on European football.

But it is great to hear the ambition of their Venezuelan striker, who is clearly not just at West Brom to sit in mid-table.
