Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned his players about the threats posed by Roma ahead of their two-leg tie.

Solskjaer named the former Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko as the Italian side’s danger-man that United should be careful of.

The Red Devils play Roma over two legs in their Europa League semi-final, starting with the away game in Rome on Thursday night.

Ole Gunnar will be trying to break his semi-final duck as United boss, with the Norweigian the last attempts scrambling following four defeats in the last four of competitions (twice in the League Cup and once apiece in the FA Cup and Europa League) with the Reds.

Roma cruised through to the last four of the Europa League competition after they overcame Ajax. While speaking to MUTV, the United boss said:

“Roma defend well, as Italians always do of course. They’re an experienced team and we all know Edin Dzeko, so any ball in the box is a dangerous one.

“We’re looking forward to it, of course. We’re in a semi-final now and it feels like a proper European tie, because Roma is a club with loads of tradition and history, but we’ve done well against Italian teams before.


“We’re looking forward to it and we’re going into these games hoping to get to the final. If you can finish this season with a final and a trophy then that would be great.”

The 35 years Bosnian international won the Premier League title during his time in Manchester with City and despite his age, he remains a goal threat for Roma having scored 12 times in all competitions this season.

United are desperate to overcome Roma and end their trophy draught with Nemanja Matic asserting how important getting to the Europa League final would be.

“I think it’s time to get to the final and win this trophy, but it’s going to be hard,” said Matic.

“We respect Roma, we know that they are a good squad with a good coach and a big club. It’s going to be interesting, but we have to believe in our qualities. We want to play in that big final and bring trophies to Old Trafford because this club deserves the best.”
