Villarreal manager Unai Emery admits he is concerned about facing Manchester United after their sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
United parted company with the Norwegian coach on Sunday after they lost 4-1 in the Premier League to Watford on Saturday.
The Red Devils travel to Villarreal to play in the Champions League group stages on Tuesday, knowing they must at least draw the game to keep their qualification fate in their own hands.
“As a coach, you don’t welcome the news that a colleague has lost his job,” Emery said, per the Daily Mail.
“I have a lot of respect for Solskjaer because of his playing and coaching career. I’ve faced Solskjaer several times and above all, I value him as a great person.
“When there’s a coaching change, there’s a reaction one way or another. The focus will be more on the players than on the bench.
“The players know, even though they are professional and must always deliver, that they have to show their faces – for Manchester, for the coach that left, and the one that has arrived or will come.
“I expect a very good Manchester United because of their players and the significance of this game.”
