MAN U VS ROMA: What Roma Manager Said Ahead Of Tomorrow's Clash

AS Roma Manager, Paulo Fonseca has delivered his statements ahead of their visit to Old Trafford tomorrow for the Uefa Europa League Semi-final first leg.

Earlier today, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Marcus Rashford and Eric Baily are in contention for the game as only Anthony Martial and Phil Jones are out.

Meanwhile, Paulo Fonseca told Italian media outlet that they are excited to face Manchester United, It's a big opportunity for the club first and foremost, but also for the city and for the players. Not everybody gets a chance to face Man United in a European semifinal.

He speaks on how they are going to defend against Man United's fast attackers by saying they have to be prepared, but, he have to confess, they can't go there just to defend. They want to have the ball, They have to have the initiative, they have to have the courage to go out and play against Manchester United.

Fonseca also says this semi-final with Manchester United is very important and I must stay entirely focused on a game that is too important for us.

On how to tackle Solskjaer's dynamic tactics, he says If one get it right, then it's a positive. He thinks right now the game is becoming increasingly strategic, managers are making subtle changes in game after game to try to gain an advantage. And it's the right thing to do. You should approach every game a little bit differently; you should try to create doubts in the mind of the other manager.

That's all from the Roma Boss.
