Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Let's get Molde!

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hopes to get former club Molde in the round of 16 Europa League draw.

United reached the round of 16 after victory over Real Sociedad, while Molde are also in the hat after their shock victory over Hoffenheim.

Asked who wants in the next round, Solskjaer said: "Of course my former team. It was a fantastic performance. It is absolutely incredible to win away against Hoffenheim in February.

"I talked to Erling (Moe, Molde coach) this morning, and we had a nice, small conversation. They had many injuries and suspensions, so 2-0 there must be the biggest achievement this round."

Moe is also open to a clash between Manchester United and Molde.

"We'll see if it can be a fun showdown against Ole Gunnar. But we will of course meet a team we can fight against over two games," says Moe to VG.
