Manchester United are on course to finish the season with silverware to boast off and Sergio Romero believes their chances in Europa League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a happy man at Old Trafford. Manchester United managed Champions League qualification for next season and they are going strong in the Europa League. 

The Norwegian tactician can emulate Jose Mourinho in his first full season. The Red Devils can lift the second-tier European club trophy to mark a great year.

United defeated Lask Linz in the Round of 16. However, they have their work cut out in the competition. Owing to the coronavirus pandemic, it has morphed into a single tie knockout affair and is being hosted in Germany.  

Sergio Romero reflected on the changing of rules to accommodate the schedules. Romero believes United can make it to the final owing to their solidity as a unit.

“In Argentina, we say these are ‘vida o muerte ‘, life-and-death games because, if you win, you progress,” he told ManUtd.com. “But, if you lose, you’re going home.”

“The fact is it will be decided by one-off games that you have to win. Anything can always happen in a game, your focus and mindset always need to be spot on, and your legs have to always respond.”

“As a group of players, if we have a team-mate who is struggling a bit on the day, all the lads have to give him a lift, so he can compete in the game in the best possible way.”

“For sure, every bit of work and effort every day in training, as well as all our dreams are focused on getting United back to another Europa League final.”

“So, we’re going to work hard for that to happen.”
