Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui believes his side deserves their spot in the Europa League final and expects that Manchester United will have an “extraordinary” future.
“It was a tough task, to be able to compete to the full like we always did,” Lopetegui told Movistar.
“Manchester United, since the return from the lockout, were the strongest side in England, they have an extraordinary path ahead.”
“There are few teams who have United’s central game. We managed to control them in the first half, at the beginning of the second half we didn’t and Bounou was fantastic. And it worked out and we had possibilities to destroy them.”
“I’ve got a lot of happiness for the boys, the fans … it’s a hard team to face and they deserved the reward. We ended up getting it and now we’re going to rest. When you get to a final, what you want is to win it.”
