PSG are on a different level: Solskjaer

Manchester Head honcho conceded the French capital side on a different level to United after the French side emerge victorious against United at Old Trafford last night.

Solskajer thinks PSG have an extra edge over United.

Last night the Caretaker manager lost for the first time in his regime at United in their Champions league round of 16 game by 2-0 goals against PSG, with Paul Pogba picked up red card in last.

PSG centre back Presnel Kimpembe gave the away side lead from Di Maria’s corner, and the French wonderkid Mbappe finished it off for the home side by putting another one.

The score line could have gone more but thanks to De Gea, he has made some fine saves and put the score line in some fighting place.

Before this match, the Norwegian international won 10 matches with United out of 11, but he believes that his team were a step below than away team last night.

He voiced: “Today we weren’t at the level. This was a level up from what we’ve played against. We’ve had a great run, we came into this game in a great frame, on great form, but of course this was a big step up.

“There is a reason behind them being one of the favourites for the Champions League. That’s the level we need to aim for at this club.”

In Champions league none of the 34 teams who have conceded two goals in their home soil can made it to the next round, despite they have to pull of a mammoth task in Paris, the United manager is still optimistic.

He voiced: “At this club you bounce back, you have to bounce back,”

“We are in a difficult tournament, whoever you play against, but our bread and butter is the league and then the FA Cup against Chelsea, there’s so many games to play for.

“When we go down there to Paris, we’ll give it a go. Of course it’s a difficult, difficult mountain to climb but it’s not impossible, if we get to half-time with a 1-0 lead that’s what we’ve got to look for.”
