Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Wednesday tried to placate angry fans of Europa League semi-final opponents Roma, who have accused the Manchester United boss of disrespecting their club.

Comments made by Solskjaer after the quarter-final triumph against Granada have angered some Giallorossi supporters, who have put up posters of the Norwegian near the Serie A club’s training ground alongside the quote: “I don’t know them and I haven’t seen them play”.

The fans have added the caption “Make sure he remembers us!”

Solskjaer, who is seeking to win his first trophy as United boss, told his pre-match press conference that the remark should be put in context.

“That was straight after the game and with all the games we’ve had I was just relieved that we’d gone through,” he said.

“Of course I’ve watched them but I hadn’t analysed and hadn’t seen them in-depth to give them enough respect probably with analysis.

“I could’ve said, which I truly mean, ‘it’s a fantastic club with a great history.”

Solskjaer said he even owned two treasured shirts worn by Roma greats.

“I’ve actually got two prized possessions back home – a (Francesco) Totti shirt and a (Daniele) De Rossi shirt that I’ve swapped with them, actually signed,” he said.

“I know about the history, I know about the quality.”

“It was not meant as any disrespect and I think everyone knows that. I’ve got loads of respect for them,” he added. (AFP)
