Europa League: Fernandes looks ahead after Granada win

Manchester United midfielder, Bruno Fernandes, has set his sight on reaching the Europa League final after his side got to the semi-final.

United reached the semi-final courtesy of a 4-0 aggregate win over Spanish La Liga side Granada.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will face Italian side AS Roma in the semi-final, while Arsenal will face Villarreal in the other final four clash.

“It was really important for us. We now have the chance to play again in a semi-final for the second season in a row and now the next step is to get into the final,” Bruno told MUTV, Manutd.com reports.

“If you play Arsenal or Villarreal it would be the same so it is a big game, big team, big players… players who can create a lot of dangers and some of them we know really well from England.

“They have good qualities, but we have qualities ourselves and we have to show them. When we play them we have to show them respect, but at the same time we have to do our best to get to the final.

“All year is an improvement for us. We have to improve every season, it doesn’t matter now what we did in the past, what we lose in the past or what we won in the past, now it is about the future so our focus has to be winning every game to the end of the season.

“Roma is a part of that, the Europa League is a competition we want to win, so our focus has to be there.”

United’s next game is a Premier League clash against Burnley this Sunday.
