Manchester United coach, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged his team to bring back memories of their amazing victory vs PSG last season against Liverpool.
United famously turned around a 2-0 first-leg defeat against the French side in last season’s Champions League last 16, winning the return leg 3-1 in Paris to progress to the quarter-finals of the competition.
Like that night, Mufc will be without a lot of important players through injury on Sunday, so Ole has called on them to give the fans another amazing result as they did in France.
His words, “You know, injuries are part and parcel of the game,”
“I can’t say who is going to be available but we’ll have 11 men out there and it reminds me a little bit of the PSG situation. We had loads of players out, everyone writes us off and are happy about that because, how can I say it, everyone doesn’t want us to win.
“But it’s Manchester United people, the Manchester United family, and we need to stick together because the 11 men out there will definitely give us what they have.”
“The feeling in a football club is always decided by results on the pitch and, of course, at the moment, we’re feeling a bit low,”
“Can it change? Definitely with a win against Liverpool and then we’ve got games coming up we’re looking forward to. That’s just the nature of a human being and a footballer.
“It’s great, of course, with the rivalry between the two teams and the history between the two teams,” added the Man Utd boss.
“The two most successful teams in England and the headlines are on you building up to this game. When you’re at Manchester United, you get used to that but beating Liverpool is the best feeling.
“In the FA Cup, when I scored a winner, we just battled and battled and battled, and got two goals towards the end of the game in 1999. It was an unbelievable feeling and I hope these boys can get some of those feelings back on Sunday.”
