Granada coach Diego Martinez has message for fans ahead of Man Utd clash

Granada coach Diego Martinez has told fans they'll be playing for them tonight against Manchester United.

The two teams meet in the first-leg of their Europa League quarterfinal tonight.

On the fans, Martinez said, “Their energy will be there tomorrow. Let them put on their horizontal red-and-white shirts because we are going to do our best as a team.

"At this time a year ago we were all confined to home and it would have been good for us to have been told that a year later we were going to be playing a quarterfinal of the Europa League competing against the entity of Manchester United.

"Let's savour the moment, this is something very important. Let's go for the honours knowing that what these players have already achieved is something extraordinary. That together we continue walking from the enjoyment and from the connection, that they feel identified with us."
