Cape Town - Ajax manager Peter Bosz is relishing the opportunity to face Manchester United in the Europa League final, after a thrilling semi-final victory.

The Dutch outfit edged out Olympique Lyonnais 5-4 on aggregate to claim a spot in the final, and will now take on the Red Devils, who beat Celta de Vigo 2-1 over two legs.

Bosz knows it will be a tough test against Jose Mourinho's men, but he is determined to make history by beating them to the silverware.

"Over the two legs, we deserve to go through," Bosz told RTL.

"This is a super feeling. I am delighted that Manchester United will be the opponents, because that's really a great opposition.

"Now we'll see if we can really make history. A final play is nice, but finals you play to win."
