Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sends Europa League message and makes Adnan Januzaj vow

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that his side's Europa League tie with Real Sociedad "feels like a Champions League draw". United dropped to the Europa League after losing to RB Leipzig in the final group stage game of the UCL and finishing 3rd in the group. Now they will face Sociedad in the UEL last 32. The Spanish side are currently leading La Liga table with 26 points, while the Red Devils are 9th in the Premier League table. “It sounds like a Champions League draw and it’s definitely one that keeps everyone on their toes,” he told United's official website. “They’re the team that’s top of La Liga at the moment ahead of teams like Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and Real Madrid. "I’ve watched them a couple of times and they’re an exciting team and it’ll be a test for us. “We’ve got some difficult games around that period. It’s not a time we can switch off and feel it’s an easy Europa League draw, this feels like a Champions League draw – they’re top of the Spanish league. We just have to stay focused.” Former Manchester City star David Silva as well as ex-United man Adnan Januzaj now both play for La Liga side. “They’re hard-working with high intensity and some high-quality players and they’ve got our own Adnan of course," Solskjaer added. “They also have some experienced players and some young, up and coming players. “Everyone who plays against Man United wants to show what could have been and Adnan’s done well in his career. "It’s always difficult to see where you’re going to go after Man United and he’s one of those boys that you hope would make it here. It wasn’t to be so now we’ll have to make sure that he’s not going to enjoy his return! “With a draw and a team like Sociedad everyone will be focused and of course we want to win trophies. “We want to go through and the Europa League is one of the tournaments we’re chasing for a trophy.” source - Manchester Evening News / Join us on Telegram
