Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says there is no room for complacency in his squad as they gear up for tonight’s Europa League clash against Granada.
Solskjaer’s Red Devils are currently in Spain where they’ll face Granada in the first leg of their quarterfinal tie at the Nuevo Estadio de Los Carmenes tonight (9pm).
With Granada down in ninth place in La Liga and United flying high in second place in the Premier League, Solskjaer’s men head into the clash as favourites.
But not having won a trophy under Solskjaer and knocked out of four cup tournaments at the semifinal stage in the last two seasons, the coach says: “Complacency? No.
“Granada beating Napoli, getting through the group and then beating Molde is a sign of a team that has quality. We have set our eyes on the final.”
The Norwegian club legend adds: “It’s very big for us. We have to live by the principle that the next game is the biggest game.”
Solskjaer included striker Marcus Rashford in his touring party, despite the player battling with a back injury.
Of Rashford playing in the clash, he says: “I don’t pick players when we know there is a risk. There’s always a risk when you step out on to the pitch, but if the physio says it’s too much of a risk I would never pick him.
“His back has recovered and it’s a tough one. He wants to play and wants to give his all for Man United.
