What Managers has to Say?

Eduardo Berizzo, Celta coach

I'm expecting a United side to come out and try to win the game – it'll be a big test. Manchester United are a team that have grown up with pressure and they deal with it on a day to day basis. We just have to concentrate on our game and what we do.

Eduardo Berizzo

José Mourinho, Manchester United manager

Trophies are very important for the club, and it is very important to be in a European final. It is important for the club to fight for the only trophy the club has never won before. For this group of players, [it would be] a first European success. It is very important for the club and players. We will fight hard. It has been a long journey – match No14 in the Europa League – and we want to win.

Build Up

Manchester United are half-way there with the away win over Celta Vigo in the first leg. Celta Vigo barely caused any problems for Sergio Romero in the first leg. But with nothing to lose, can they challenge Manchester United's keeper this time round? We are eagerly looking for a tough response from the Spanish side tonight. In the first leg, Jose Mourinho wasn’t looking happy at the half-time, but he certainly was at his feet when Rashford scored from that free-kick. The teenager was brilliant overall and was the leading man for Red Devils. Despite the injury concerns, Jose Mourinho was a happy man at the Full-Time but Work needs to be done at Old-Trafford tonight.   

Jose Mourinho: "He's a 19-year-old kid in love with football. He works, he's mature and what matters is not his age but his quality."
