Ole Gunnar Solskjaer described it as a ‘dream come true’ to lift the title as Manchester United manager, with his side preparing for the Europa League (UEL) semi-final match against Roma.
Although Solskjaer has improved his Premier League standings since taking office in December 2018, he has yet to win a trophy and has been eliminated in the four semi -finals the team has reached.
That included with last season’s UEL semi -final against the winners, Sevilla.
United hosted Roma for the first leg, a team they had met six times before-all in the Champions League (UCL)-and won four of them.
The 7-1 win was one of a rematch in the 2007 Champions League quarter-finals that saw Solskjaer come down as a player, a spirit that is expected to be revived at Old Trafford early tomorrow morning.
“This will be a dream come true when I can lift the trophy for this club as a manager,” Solskjaer said.
“That’s what we’re developing. This is a if and no, but our ambition is to end the season with a trophy and celebrate. I know what this group means.”
