Ole speaks after Roma: Satisfaction and disappointment

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is content with beating AS Roma on aggregate but unhappy with losing the second leg.

The Red Devils travelled to Italy with a 6-2 advantage from Old Trafford, and Roma’s 3-2 win in Rome was not enough to take the Italians to the final.

“It feels good of course. We played one very, very good half at Old Trafford which has brought us through and today we did the job,” Ole said to United media.

“I'm disappointed that we lost the game, I never like to lose a game, especially the way we did it, but it was always going to be one of these games that was going to be open. There were chances for both teams, it easily could have been 6-6 or 8-6 for them, so it was a strange game of football.

“It’s great to be in a final. We’ll forget the second half here when we’re in Gdansk definitely. We made it too open, it was always going to be an open game of course because they had to score, that was going to create chances for us, but we’re through,” the Norwegian concluded.

The focus now turns to the bread and butter of the Premier League, with a trip to Birmingham to visit Aston Villa on Sunday.
