Ahead of today’s Europa League clash at Old Trafford, Real Sociedad boss Imanol Alguacil has hailed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United team as the best Manchester United side in the last 10 years.

He said: “It’s the best Man United in the last 10 years.

“They’re battling with Man City for the Premiership. They’re really world-class physically, and quality-wise, they’re really good.

“We know how difficult it is to cause nerves in Man United even if we score that first goal. But we want to be competitive.

“We’re going to try and go out there to win the game but, above all, we need to prove ourselves that we are not that far (from United).

“We might be far from Man United but we’re not as far as the result of the first leg suggests.”
