Malaga midfielder Ignacio Camacho has urged the club to secure qualification for the UEFA Champions League.

The Spanish side reached the quarter-finals of this season’s competition before being knocked out in dramatic fashion by Borussia Dortmund.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side are sixth in La Liga, five points behind fourth-placed Real Sociedad with six games to go.

Malaga are banned from European competition next term due to financial irregularities, but with an appeal hearing set to take place in July, Camacho is keen to secure a second season in Europe’s top competition next season.

“We are focused on finishing as high as possible and why should we be satisfied with the Europa League when we still have a chance of getting into the Champions League,” Camacho said.

“This year we have experienced at first-hand how great the competition is but of course it is better to be in Europe than end up with nothing.

“We have to complete all the work we have done this season in the six matches we have left.”

Malaga surprised many with their performances in the UEFA Champions League, but despite their disappointing league form Camacho believes failure to qualify for Europe would not be a fair reflection of their efforts.

He added: “The team has worked extremely well for the whole season and finishing outside the European places would not be fair on us. It’s going to be a short but intense month and each game is crucial.”
