Manchester United will face an exciting challenge in the UEFA Europa League’s next round.
The Europa League quarter-final draw was announced on Friday afternoon, and the Red Devils will now face six-time winners Sevilla in a two-leg match to add to their recent Carabao Cup title.
Erik ten Hag, weighed in after the Red Devils were drawn against Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League quarterfinals.
The Red Devils will face Fulham in the FA Cup on Sunday (March 19).
Ten Hag is aware of the threats posed by Sevilla, who have won the competition six times.
However, the Manchester United manager said that he is not currently thinking about the Europa League match.
“Back to Sevilla and as you say a very good record we have to be aware of it,” Ten Hag told a press conference (via the Manchester Evening News).
“It is going to be tough; they are very experienced in the Europa League, won it so many times. I don’t know the team in detail but for me the most important is football, and I don’t look forward to Seville (just yet).”
After Arsenal were knocked out of the competition by Sporting CP on Thursday, the English team is the only Premier League team left in the competition.
Meanwhile, AS Roma will try to extend their winning streak in the Europa League after winning the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference Competition last season.

At this point in the competition, Italy is the only country with more than one team left, and Juventus is competing for a trophy despite a challenging season that has already seen them lose points in Serie A after being found guilty of “financial irregularities” and “false accounting” in January.
While Sporting CP of Portugal will face Massimiliano Allegri’s squad.
