The Dutch international feels that the Rossoneri are definitely one of the favourites to win the European crown, provided they stay injury free.
The Dutch midfielder is buoyant about his team’s chances in the UEFA Champions League, stating, “AC Milan can win the Champions League”.
Emanuelson claimed this after the Rossoneri humiliated Arsenal 4-0 in the first-leg of last 16 round at the San Siro. The Rossoneri have one foot in the quarter-finals of the competition, as it would take nothing short of a miracle
for the North London side to come back from such a big deficit.

for the Champions League trophy, should they stay free of injury concerns.
Speaking about the contenders for the European title, he remarked:
"Everyone talks about and Madrid, but if we always play like tonight we could win this competition.”
The former Ajax man is full of praise for striker,, who was phenomenal in the match against Arsenal. The Swede was a menace for the Gunners defence, as he scored a goal and had two assists, too.
"We played wonderfully tonight, and Ibra was amazing," said the 25-year-old to

The 25-year-old drew his attention to the impact made in the match, stating:
"You have to consider that we still have a lot of injuries. Look what [Kevin-Prince] Boateng did after just coming back – that speaks volumes. When everyone is available for selection, I am sure we can win the Champions League."
The San Siro outfit will be travel to the Emirates Stadium for the reverse fixture of the tie on March 6th. The Serie A leaders will host A.C Cesena in their next league game at the weekend.
