Falling out of the Champions League at the end of 2020 was a hard blow to assimilate but now United wants to make a difference in the Europa League. As a favorite he has that responsibility: “We have enjoyed the road, but we want more,” said Solskjaer before facing Roma tomorrow in the first leg of the semifinals at Old Trafford. The Norwegian remembered 7-1 a few years ago and appealed to behave like that time: “We want a great night.”
He is lucky to have Rashford, who at last seems to have forgotten the foot problems: “He has been through bad times but he will be available for Roma,” said Solskjaer. A rival to take into account, experienced and with footballers used to big events. It’s not going to be a formality, far from it: “It’s a fantastic club. I have a Totti shirt and a De Rossi shirt from my time as a player. We have analyzed its potential and we are prepared ”, he said.
With the Premier on the verge of candy for City, United have to put all their efforts in the Europa League: “We want to end the season with a title and celebrate it. I know it can mean a lot to the people and to the dressing room, ”said the Manchester team coach, who dreams of that moment since he relieved Mourinho on the bench in December 2019. The team has not out of tune since then, but need to be confirmed on a big date.
A Solskjaer who did not want to further the controversy about the Super League. For now, I close the matter. Another thing is the debate of the goal. He has alternated in this final stretch of the season to De Gea and Henderson. The Madrid goal, in the Europa League. English, in the Premier. And the rumors about the future of the Spaniard do not seem to stop anytime soon: “I am fortunate to have two great goalkeepers. They both have my support ”, declared the Norwegian, who wants this Europa League above all else.
