Solskjaer Says Man Utd Have Quality To Win Champions League

Solskjaer Says Man Utd Have Quality To Win Champions League

Manchester City won both of their Premier League ties with Tottenham last season and also beat Mauricio Pochettino's side at Wembley earlier in this campaign.

United's hopes of European glory remain alive after overcoming Paris St Germain and, speaking before being drawn against Barcelona, Solskjaer said they have proved that "on any given day we can beat a top team". "He can't play there [at Wolves] this weekend", he told reporters.

"We've played so much worse and won games, and that's the unusual thing when you're a manager".

Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett has repeatedly stated Bale's intention to remain at the Bernabeu, but United are one of just a handful of clubs with the wherewithal to acquire the forward.

Despite being heavy favourite to land the job full-time, the club are yet to make an official announcement although Solskjaer is now openly talking about planning for the summer transfer window - including links with Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale, whose future is uncertain following Zinedine Zidane's return to the Bernabeu.

"With the Arsenal one, I'm very disappointed in the result but we can't look at the performance and say we were s**t because we weren't, to be honest and blunt, we weren't, we played well". It's easy when you're in the media or when you're a supporter, you can think short term.

"We've got to think about the longevity as well, who's going to fit in personality-wise. So there's so many things that we need to think about".

"We have played so much worse and won games and that's the unusual thing when you're a manager you can look behind the result and say that was a good performance but we didn't get what we deserved... it's so odd". "Back then, we beat Liverpool, we beat Chelsea and we beat Arsenal".

"We've been on a good run's not "squeaky bum time" like the gaffer used to say, but it tightens up".
