Jorge Molina

believes singling out specific players is foolish as the Red Devils are capable of hurting them from just about every area of the field.

Molina has told


of facing the Red Devils:

"Manchester United are second in the Premier League after the mighty City. I think they are having a very good season and we know it will be very difficult.

"They have players who are strong at the back and then have very fast players going forward. They counter very quickly as we saw in the tie against Real [Sociedad], and they are fast and powerful.

"It is a very complete team that is difficult to break down and you have to be very focused so that they don't hurt you.

"They have many top players and they are all very good. If you look at one, another will hurt you.

"In the end, we have to be very focused all the time and have help from everyone to be able to stop them."

Molina believes although it is going to be difficult for them, they will still have a chance if they do things well.

He added:

"Well, we got the most complicated draw, the favorite for the title. But that is what everyone wants. Who would have thought that we would be playing a quarter-final against Manchester United?

"They are a great of Europe, a historic club, but we are going to play the tie with the conviction that we can progress. It will be difficult but if we do things well we will have a chance.”

Pressed further on how Granada will approach a meeting with the Red Devils, Molina said: "With respect, obviously, because if not we would hamper ourselves. But with the utmost enthusiasm and conviction that we can progress."

Although Granda have lost their last three games through all competitions and have only won three games from their last 14 outings, they have been able to impress under pressure in Europe and continue to occupy a standing inside the top half of the

La Liga
