August 30, 2019 at 16:36 GMT +00:00 · Published

A day after the Champions League group stage draw in Monte Carlo, the Monaco city welcomed football royalties for the Europa League draw on Friday.

Manchester United was handed a tough draw in the form of long journeys the team needs to undertake to play against Partizan Belgrade and Astana of Kazakhstan in Group L.

"We much rather do it ourselves and finish on the top 4 in our own premiere league but we are in this competition to win it simple as that. Any competition we enter we are in to win," said the team's ambassador Denis Irwin who expressed hope their side's Pogba will mentor young players in the team.

AS Rome's Vice President Mauro Baldissoni on his part reacted to the tragic death of the young daughter of their former manager Luis Enrique who lost her battle to cancer at the age of nine.

"I have to say this news really hit us, obviously. We cannot do anything but stay close to him, we have sent messages of affection," said Baldissoni.
