Ilicic has Champions League belief

Palermo youngster Josip Ilicic is confident his side can qualify for next season's Champions League after Sunday's impressive victory over Roma.

The Slovenia international scored in Palermo's 3-1 win, which takes Delio Rossi's team up to fifth in the standings after 14 games.

"I don't feel important for this team," Ilicic said. "It's important that we won against a great team like Roma by also entertaining."

Asked if he believes in the Champions League, he replied: "Absolutely. We have started playing well and the Champions League is our objective.

"Anyway I must thank the team again. They have treated me well. I seem to have been here for a long time," he concluded.
