Ole Gunnar Solksjaer confirms winning the Europa would be massive for Manchester United and believes it could have a similar effect to the club’s first Premier League triumph in 1993.
Ole Gunnar has a quest to win his first trophy as United Boss after falling short in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup semi finals this seasons. Manchester united take 5-0 aggregate lead into the second leg of their Europa League last-16 tie with Austrian side LASK on Wednesday and are expected to ease through to a quarter final meeting with either Istanbul Basaksehir or Copenhagen.
”It’s massive”, Ole said. You could see that when Sir Alex won the Premier League for the first time.. ”For me personally, when I won my first trophy as a player , it made me hungrier because you saw the highs of it. As a coach, I won the League with Molde and that was the club in their 100-year history, Since then, we have won it four times in nine years. It was a big change for the club.
We’eve been to two semi finals in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup, but we want to win something.
Ole confirms Jesse Lingard will start against LASK and has task the midfielder to show his better side.
