Marouane Fellaini has said Manchester United will give “everything” to secure a return to the Champions League, starting by reaching the Europa League quarter-finals.
Jose Mourinho’s side meet Rostov at Old Trafford in a good position to reach the last eight, having secured a 1-1 draw in the first leg last week.
United are locked in a tense battle to finish in the top four of the Premier League this season, as they lie in sixth place in the table and six points adrift of fourth-place Liverpool, although they have two games in hand.
With victory in the Europa League final in May perhaps offering their most realistic route of a return to Europe’s top competition.
“All the players, staff and supporters want to be in the Champions League next season so we will do everything to be there. We have the squad and the players, we are confident. Everyone will see that against Rostov. We are confident.
“We have played good teams in Europe. In the Premier League, every game is tough. Every game is difficult. We have to take it game by game”, Sports Opera reports.
