Shaw and Fernandes react to Sir Alex's presence
Luke and Bruno are delighted to have Sir Alex in Poland, but insist Ole has the squad fired up already...
The presence of a legend like Sir Alex is naturally inspiring, yet Shaw admitted the players are already raring to go and will not need any additional motivation on matchday. “I wouldn't expect him to speak to us,” said Luke. “We see him around the hotel at the moment a little, but within the team we have to inspire ourselves and focus on what we need to do as a group. “I am sure we don't need people to inspire us for the game tomorrow, as much of a legend as he is. Inside our group we need to do that ourselves. Of course I'm sat next to the manager now and I am sure he'll be doing that tomorrow so I'm not sure we'll be seeing too much of Sir Alex tomorrow.” As another senior player at the top table, Fernandes agreed with Shaw’s view and explained Solskjaer has already adopted Sir Alex’s mentality from a long career under the former United boss. “I think we have a coach who passed a lot of time with Sir Alex Ferguson so everything he could say to us, he already knows,” said Bruno. “So he could pass that message to us. We trust our coach. “The team is confident, we trust ourselves, we know what we have to do, we've worked for an entire season together and this is our moment to enjoy this final and try to do our best. “We've trained well the days before. We have another day to train and we will prepare well for the game. It's to make the job tomorrow, do it properly but at the same time, enjoy the moment because being in the final is not for everyone and we have to enjoy it.”
