Solskjaer Says Man Utd Have Quality To Win Champions League

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Gareth Bale

Attention has been on Manchester United's Champions League draw with Barcelona for the quarter-finals, but attention now switches to last eight concerns elsewhere for the Red Devils.

"Wolves have already beaten Liverpool under the lights in the FA Cup, in round three, but Jurgen Klopp made a lot of changes for that game, and I don't see Solskjaer doing the same". "He can't play there [at Wolves] this weekend", he told reporters.

United fans will be boosted to see Jesse Lingard among the stars making the trip, with the midfielder having been ruled out for the last six games with a hamstring injury.

The 46-year-old said: 'Any game you lose is a big anti-climax.

'I don't agree with Gary Neville when he says teams should go out of this competition to focus on that.

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. "We're looking forward to this one", Solskjaer said, quoted by the Mail.

"It's not easy - I don't know if it's easy either - when you're in the media or when you're a supporter, you can think short-term".

Cyclone Idai battered Mozambican coastal city Beira on Friday, jeopardising the lives of almost half a million people. Many houses have been damaged and bridges washed away in parts of the Manicaland province which borders Mozambique.

"There's so many things that we need to think about".

United and Solskjaer have a month to wait before restarting their Champions League campaign when Lionel Messi and Barcelona visit Old Trafford on April 10.

"If you can get a decent result at home then we can go away and beat anyone, like we did in Paris".

"We've got great faith in him as the next Michael Carrick".

Any move for Bale or another high-profile wide player would surely mark the end of Alexis Sanchez's forgettable spell with United.

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