Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he is relishing the chance to take on Austrian side LASK Linz. The Norwegian has warned the team against complacency as we look to extend our 10-games unbeaten run.
This will be our first meeting against the Austrian in history.
Speaking to MUTV, he said, “They are ahead of Salzburg in the league. We’ve seen them knock out Alkmaar quite easily, really comfortably. This is a tough game.”
“They play a certain style of football they are used to – high energy, high tempo, they’re very good at set-pieces and know the system. So this is going to be a challenge for our boys.”
The game will be played behind closed doors after orders from the Austrian governments because of the spread of corornavirus in Europe.
But manager is less bothered about it;
“They’ve played in games on the training ground behind closed doors, when we invite different teams. We’ll make sure we’re ready and have the team spirit and atmosphere within the team, knowing it’s a very important game for us, and focus on playing football.”
United will be looking for a positive away result against LASK before our away league clash against former Boss Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday hoping to keep their top-four hopes alive.
