Erik ten Hag has reacted to the Europa League draw after Manchester United were drawn to face Sevilla in the quarter-finals.
United reached the last eight after beating Real Betis in the previous round and will return to Spain once again to take on Sevilla in the quarter-finals, with the first leg set take place on April 13 and the return a week later.
The Spanish side are the record six-time winners of the competition and Ten Hag is anticipating a tough test against Jorge Sampaoli’s side, despite their difficult domestic campaign.
“They have a very good record and we have to be aware of it,” Ten Hag said, as per the BBC.
“It is going to be tough, they are very experienced in the Europa League and have won it so many times.
“I don’t know the team in detail but for me the most important is football and I don’t look forward to Sevilla.
“First we have international break and then three Premier League games, so there isn’t much time to focus on that.
“All the opponents are coming to this stage of Europa League are strong and you have to play your best football if you want to go through.”
