Manchester United’s interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has insisted that if they are able to score the first goal, then they are not facing “mission impossible” against Paris St. Germain tomorrow.
United trail the French champions 2-0 going into the second leg of the last 16 tie at Parc des Princes, with caretaker boss Solskjaer missing 10 senior players.
Despite United being given little hope of advancing, Solskjaer said his makeshift side will go into tomorrow’s tie believing they can go through against all the odds.
“It’s never mission impossible. It’s more difficult, but we’ve got to get the first goal and then anything can happen.
“Suddenly, goals always change games and if we get the first one we’ll be believing even more and they might start doubting themselves, but it’s important we get the first one.
“You can say that [there’s no pressure on United] because we’re 2-0 down, but we’ll never approach any game as a lost cause.
“We put that pressure on ourselves. Everyone expects us to go out – and easily – but that doesn’t happen with Manchester United.
“Our pride was hurt last time we played them, so we’re going to see players who give their all. If we get nine or 10 playing to their top standard, we’ve got a chance,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
