Real Madrid So Man United’s First Target to Conquer Europe
Fullback Manchester United, Antonio Valencia, with his colleagues are preparing themselves against Real Madrid in the European Super Cup match, Tuesday (08/08/2017) or Wednesday morning GMT. This event brings together two European champions last season in which Real Madrid champions Champions League while Man United Europa League winners.
Valencia revealed that his team will work harder to win the trophy. He is reluctant to give up even though Real Madrid are more favored because of the status of the Champions League rulers, the highest caste competition among European clubs.
He also agrees with Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho that the European Super Cup is his team’s first target in the upcoming season.
“We will fight to get the European Super Cup, that’s our first target,” said the 32-year-old.
The Ecuadorian is hoping his team can play with high motivation and concentration to defeat the Spanish league giants.
“My main target is to win a lot of titles, so I have to play the game in earnest,” he said.
“Every season I always hope to be a winner.”
Man United just won the European Super Cup and three times runner-up. Real Madrid have won the event three times, including last year, and twice came second.
