Southampton midfielder Victor Wanyama believes that Champions League football is a possibility for his new club Southampton.
The 22-year-old played in the competition last season for Celtic, scoring the winner as the Hoops ran out a famous 2-1 win against Barcelona. They then moved into the last-16 before being knocked out of the competition by Italian side Juventus.
The Kenyan international then moved to Southampton, becoming the first Kenyan to ever play in the Premier League.
“I believe that one day Champions League football is achievable for Southampton,” Wanyama is quoted by BBC Sport.
“Everything step by step and I believe one day we will also be there.”
Southampton have had mixed results in the opening three games of their campaign, winning one, drawing one and losing one of their opening three fixtures.
They play West Ham who are equal on points with the Saints, at St Mary's on Sunday.
“I think it is going to be a hard game, but we are ready for it and looking forward to the challenge,” said an excited Wanyama.
“We have been working hard and we had some good results, and also some bad ones, but I think we are still on track and look forward to doing well.”
