Real Sociedad manager Imanol Alguacil discussed today’s Europa League draw with Roma as the two teams are set to face each other in March as part of the round of 16.

The Spanish technician called the draw “fascinating” and expressed his optimism for the two legs awaiting them.

“I think it will be a fascinating spectacle, with many beautiful moments,” Alguacil said in a press conference appearance.

“Rome is historic city for fans, with a great club and a great manager. Will facing Mourinho be special? Surely. Above all because I will be facing someone who has been a point of reference for me for my whole career.”

“Can we beat Roma? Yes if we do things the right way. We won with Manchester United… why shouldn’t we do it with Roma?”
