David Luiz says Chelsea must get over their Champions League exit quickly and focus on winning other trophies instead.
Chelsea beat Nordsjaelland 6-1 in their final Group E game on Wednesday but were eliminated from the competition thanks to Juventus' 1-0 win over Shakhtar Donetsk.
It means Rafa Benitez's men have become the first holders of the Champions League to go out at the group stage.
It also means they will be playing in the Europa League when European action resumes next year.
Luiz refused to criticise the much-maligned competition, insisting he wanted Chelsea to win the Europa League so he can add it to his medal collection.
Such fighting talk means punters may be tempted to use their free bet to back the Stamford Bridge club to lift the trophy in May.
Luiz also stressed the need to stop feeling sorry for themselves and seek to bounce back with a win at Sunderland in the Premier League on Saturday.
"The Europa League is glamorous for me," said the Brazilian. "I don't have this title so I want to win it. I look to the Europa League like I did the Champions League because I don't have this medal. We can do great things in this competition.
"I am sad but football is quick and we have another game in two days and another big competition in one week. I can't spend three or four nights crying - you have to look to the next match.
"We have a difficult game on Saturday so need to change our mood."
