Sevilla have revealed that they aren’t scared of Manchester United following today’s UEFA Champions League draw.
The Spanish side will host the current Europa League champions in the first leg, before the return leg at Old Trafford.
“Already with the hype it is not easy, there is a team of more or less prestige, but United is one of the most important there is,” said Sevilla sports chief Oscar Arias.
“We are going to have possibilities, it’s a very strong and powerful team, Celta was on the verge of putting them out last year, they made merits for that, we’ll have options.”
Sevilla attacker Nolito, who was with Manchester City last season, says he dreamed of drawing United.
“It is a complicated opponent, when the duel comes we will try to compete as best as possible, they are outstanding, I had dreamed last night that we played Manchester United, it is a great team, a magnificent stadium and have world craques.”
Pablo Sarabia added: “It’s going to be very competitive, we know that (Jose) Mourinho prepares the playoffs very well, we have options and we will try to put everything on the table to try to qualify.”
