Young Boys manager says artificial surface won't be complication for United
- Gerardo Seoane doesn't think an artificial surface Stade Suisse will cause any problems for Man United
- The Swiss coach also stated that his players cannot simply focus on stopping Romelu Lukaku
- The Belgian striker faced Young Boys in Europa League during his time at Everton
"We can't change the pitch," Seoane said, as quoted by the Daily Mail. "It's clear they are not used to pitches like this, so in the beginning, it will be a special feeling.
"But with training tonight and the warm-up, I think they will be alright. They have the quality, speed and technique to play on this pitch. So I don't think it's going to be a problem."
While Man United face the Swiss outfit for the first time in their history, Big Rom is familiar with scoring at Stade Suisse. The 25-year-old scored a hat-trick here and five goals over two legs - when Everton beat Young Boys in the Europa League in 2014.

"Normally, it is the players who score the goals we need to look out for," he added. "But I can see eight players who can score goals in that team. So it's not just one player. The defence need to work together and defend close. There's more important than one player.
"Of course, it is a difficult task, but we'll try to be active. We'll play with courage. We can't do that for the whole game, but that is how we want to play."
