Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United coach, praised his rival this Thursday in the Europa League quarter-finals, saying about Granada that they are a team "with a lot of character and experience" .

"I've seen several of their games and talked to some of the scouts. They are a very experienced team. A lot of character and a lot of experience, which is what you can expect from teams that have recently been promoted. They had a great season last year and this season they are one of the most games played, "said the Norwegian at a press conference.

On possible rotations after the 2-1 win against Brighton at the weekend, Solskjaer noted that "very important" games are coming and that those things are decided on the morning of the game, when they see how the players are.

He also did not want Manchester United to be seen as a very favorite at this junction. "No, Granada have beaten Napoli, they have passed the group stage and then they have beaten Molde. It is a sign that they are a group with quality," he said.

In addition, Solskjaer confirmed the absences of Anthony Martial due to injury and Eric Bailly, who has not been able to return from Ivory Coast due to being infected with covid-19.

The one who can have minutes against Granada is Marcus Rashford, who after a small muscle problem had trained outside the group until this Wednesday.

"I'm not going to tell you who I'm going to play with, of course. We will decide tomorrow if he plays as a starter or as a substitute, but I don't think he's there to play 90 minutes," said the Norwegian coach.
