‘It is not going to be easy’ – Solskjaer speaks ahead of Europa League semi-final

Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said the Europa League will be tough for his side who look to reach the final for the first time since 2017.

After knocking out Spanish La Liga side Granada in the quarter-final, United face AS Roma in the semi-final.

The other semi-final is between Premier League side Arsenal and La Liga outfit Villarreal.

Speaks to Sky Sports, Solskjaer said: “We’re under no illusions, it is not going to be easy [in the Europa League], there are still three very good teams left in the tournament. We’ve got to play well to get to the final for a start, and then win a final.

“That’s what we’re going for. It’s been a relentless season, we’ve not had any let-up between games, but it is something we want to finish the season with.”

The first leg of the tie between Manchester United and Roma takes place at Old Trafford on the 29th of April, while the second leg takes place at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on May 6th.
