Solskjaer is Tipping Man United To Win Champions League
Following the remarkable 3-1 away-goals success over Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) that put them into the quarter-finals for the very first time in 5 years, Man United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is tipping Manchester United to win the Champions League.
Stoppage-time penalty goal by Marcus Rashford, has made Man United ends up being the very first club to advance to the next round of the Champions League after losing the very first leg of a knockout match in there home by 2 or more goals.
United cancelled the 2-0 loss to PSG at Old Trafford when striker Romelu Lukaku scored two goals in the first half and Marcus Rashford converted the controversial handball penalty caused by Presnel Kimpembe to goal number 3 at about 93 minutes of the game.
Following Wednesday match with PSG, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in high spirit told reporters,
“Of course we fancy ourselves, we can go all the way, but we just have to wait for the draw and take each game as it comes.
“We’ve had loads of injuries, suspensions, but that was maybe a good thing today as we had a fresh team, loads of energy. We knew we had to defend, be humble enough to work hard and we had a team to do that.”
Man United manager is looking forward to Sunday match against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium as he hope to continue his unbeaten run since he took over from Jose Mourinho in December 2018.
Solskjaer has recorded a successful outing so far in Man U after helping United get 14 victories from 17 matches. This is making his chance of becoming a full time manager very bright.
Solskjaer is not thinking on the short term basis but on a long term basis.
He said, “I keep doing this job the best I can every single day and then let’s see where it takes us,”
“It’s been a fantastic time, with the players and staff I’ve got working with me. I’ve just got to say I’m going to enjoy this job for as long as I’ve got it.
“If It’s another two months, three months, however long it is, I’m going to enjoy it, I’m going to smile.
“I am planning, with the club, for the future. It does not matter if I am here or not. I am still giving my advice and opinions for next season.
“I am a supporter as well, and I want the best for Man United. We planned how we were going to go through, and we did it.
“It’s special when you’re a coach or manager doing it. The dressing room in there was absolutely unbelievable,” he added, after celebrating with former United boss Alex Ferguson and ex-team-mate Eric Cantona.
“Just to see the whole club together, with the owners, ex-managers, ex-players, it’s a great atmosphere.”
