John Guidetti says Celta Vigo will paint the sky blue as they prepare to take on Manchester United in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final.
The former Manchester City forward expressed determination that his side would “keep the city blue” when they face Jose Mourinho’s men on Thursday.
He told Uefa.com that although United have a fantastic squad with a very good manager, he said Celta Vigo are up to the task.
Guidetti added that it is obvious the English side are eager to play the Champions League next season, stressing that it will be a tough one for both teams.
“[United are] a very good team. Obviously they’ve got a good manager, a fantastic stadium, and they’re one of the favourites to win the Europa League; but as they say “Manchester is blue” and that’s how it will be when we visit there as well, because we are Celta Vigo and we will try to keep the city blue.
“We know how much is at stake for Manchester United, they also want to play in the Champions League next year. So this is a tournament that they want to win, but we also want to win it; both the home and away legs will be like two finals,” he said.
