Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has seen the confidence grow in his Manchester United players ahead of the Europa League Final against Villarreal

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Harry Maguire will "try to join in" Manchester United's final training session before the Europa League final against Villarreal.

The United club captain has travelled to Gdansk as part of the 26-man squad for the match on Wednesday night, for which the final round of preparations will take place on Tuesday evening.

Solskjaer confirmed Maguire, who missed the final four games of the domestic season with an ankle injury, would attempt to play some part in the final session but the defender watched the start of the session from the bench as his team-mates trained at the Stadion Gdansk.

"Harry is just going to jog up and down the sideline I reckon," he said. "He'll probably try to join in a little bit but other than that we're looking quite good."

For Solskjaer, the Europa League final represents the opportunity for a unique achievement - playing a key role in European trophy successes for Manchester United as both a player and a manager.

Solskjaer embedded his name in United folklore by scoring the winning goal in the 2-1 Champions League final victory over Bayern Munich in 1999 but says personal glory is not on his radar this week.

"I don't even think about that," he said. "I'm always looking forward and thinking about the next decision, making the right decision for the club.

"I never think about my CV, never. I think about making sure the players are ready. If you have to make decisions tomorrow, then you do it.

"I'll speak to the subs and tell them they might have to play a big part. Players can be disappointed, they can be angry with me but they should enjoy it because you don't play too many finals in your life."

Solskjaer will announce his team selection to the squad on Wednesday and says any close calls will be made on recent form.

"It's always difficult to leave players out but a final is a reward for what you've done over the whole season," he said.

"Then, if there's a doubt between a couple of players it comes down to the form in the latter stages.

"We'll enjoy the last training session and the players will get the team tomorrow."
