FC Midtjylland coach Jess Thorup has claimed that his team will need a ‘miracle’ to get past Manchester United in their last-32 tie in the Europa League.
This afternoon in Nyon, the Danish side were drawn United, who crashed out of the Champions League last week.
“Miracles have happened before, and we will proably need one again,” UEFA’s official website quotes Thorup as saying. “However, we do not just lie down. We deserved to qualify for the round of 32, and we aim to prove that to ourselves and to our opponents.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool were drawn Augsburg and Tottenham Hotspur will take on Fiorentina in the knockout round.
