Reaching the final is still undecided - Solskjaer

Wed 05 May 2021 | 14:49

The Red Devils will play a return match against Rome tonight.

Manchester United

boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that despite a 6-2 victory in the first leg, his side's promotion to the final is still uncertain.

In the first leg, Solskjaer's side defeated AS Roma 6-2 to take a big step towards the Europa League final. The match will take place tonight in Italy and Roma must score at least 4 goals in order to hope to advance to the next round. Now Solskjaer claims that despite the good result that his team has achieved in the first round, their task of reaching the final is still unknown.

"We're not going to play on the result, we're going to play to win that game,”

said Solskjaer in his press conference.

"That's the only way I think we can play this game. Of course there might be one or two changes in the selection, but we have to get into the final.

"Everyone says it's done but I've seen bigger upsets than this. Roma beat Barcelona in a second leg after being 4-1 down."

United leave for Rome without any of their players being injured and Solskjaer continued:

"We've got a great fitness staff. It's been a process since we came in. We brought in some young staff when I came.

"We brought in some robustness. A winning Man United team has players that can play 40, 50 games per season at a high standard.

"That is lifestyle, it's training. It's about when you're not playing, to get complete match fitness."
