What has been said?
AZ manager Arne Slot: “Manchester United is one of the biggest clubs in the world, two years ago they won the Europa League. We have a lot of respect for them.
“In any case, we will enter the field without fear. We realise that we are good. We are going to see how the relationship is. At least we are full of confidence.”
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “I’m surprised they’ve chosen to play on this pitch when I look at it. I’m used to astroturf pitches from back in Norway and it’s not the best I’ve seen.
“It’s one of the worst ones I’ve seen for a long while. We’ve all got standards back home in Norway and they’re all modern and new. It’s not the newest and it seems like it’s been used a lot.”
