Clint Dempsey insists the squad is determined to do well in all competitions as we prepare to take on Panathinaikos in the Europa League tonight.
We face the Greek giants in Matchday Two of the Europa League in the Olympic Stadium, Athens. Kick-off is 8pm local time, 6pm UK.
“We want to do well in every competition we’re in, whether that’s the Premier League, Europa League or Capital One Cup,” said the USA international.
“We have a lot of depth and there are lots players we can use to try and do well in these competitions. Everyone is hungry and everyone wants to make this year a special one.”
Asked what he knew about Panathinaikos, Clint added: “I know it’s a big club, a club with a lot of history and a lot of success.
“We know it’s not going to be easy and it will be a difficult challenge, but that’s what it’s all about in this competition, playing against top teams. We’re looking forward to it.”
