Manchester United have a chance to prove just how far they’ve come under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Sunday in the Europa League semi-final.
The signs have been very promising – both visually and results-wise – but a win over Sevilla to reach a major European final would hammer home the theory that this team is going places fast. A place in the final against Inter Milan or Shakhtar Donetsk is the prize on offer.
The last meeting between these two teams, just over two years ago, saw United dumped out of the Champions League last-16 by the La Liga side at Old Trafford. It was a performance that epitomised Jose Mourinho’s final months in the job; unimaginative, stale and downright dull.
