Paulo Fonseca insists reaching the Europa League semi-final against Manchester United ‘changes nothing’ for his future, while Roma ‘had Ajax under control.’

The Giallorossi had won the first leg 2-1 in Amsterdam, so a 1-1 draw at the Olimpico allowed them to book their semi-final spot against Manchester United.

The first leg is set for Old Trafford on April 29, with the Olimpico lit up on May 6.

“I think we had more problems defensively in Amsterdam, whereas tonight we largely had Ajax under control. They are a team with a lot of quality, but we did really well in defence today,” Fonseca told Sky Sport Italia.

“It’s difficult to play a team with that kind of quality going forward. We played a very realistic game, knowing we had the 2-1 first leg advantage, and I think we took the right approach.”

Fonseca was asked how reaching the semi-final might change his rapport with Roma and the on-going reports over his future.

“It doesn’t change anything. I don’t know if I will be the Roma coach next season, just that I will be the coach for the next game.

“As I’ve always said, I am not remotely concerned with the future. All that matters now is Roma. The club owners have always been very close to us all and we feel their presence.”
