On-loan Liverpool midfielder Nuri Sahin does not view being asked to help lead an under-strength side's Europa League challenge as a step down for him.

Last season the 24-year-old Turkey international was playing alongside the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Xabi Alonso in Real Madrid's run to the semi-finals of the Champions League. On Thursday night he will make his second appearance since moving to Anfield on a season-long temporary deal in a virtual Liverpool reserve side against Young Boys in Bern.

"I know maybe in England the focus is more on the Champions League," he said. "Maybe it's because the English teams are getting used to winning trophies in the Champions League: if you look at the semi-finals most of the teams are Spanish or English. Every player wants to play Champions League but I am not the type of person to say it is a step down."
