Man Utd arrive at team hotel ahead of PSG clash as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer urges stars to seize chance


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged his Manchester United troops to take their chance as they prepare for a Champions League last-16 showdown against Paris Saint-Germain.

The Norwegian and his squad checked in at the Hilton Garden Hotel on Monday night as they gear up for Tuesday’s first leg at Old Trafford.

When the draw for this match was made in December, few gave Jose Mourinho’s United much chance of advancing beyond the Champions League’s Round of 16.

But United have been transformed since Solskjaer replaced the Portuguese, winning 10 and drawing one of his 11 games in charge.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer waves to fans

“We’ve given ourselves the best possible opportunity because of the way we’ve come into this game,” Solskjaer said.

“We’re confident and we’re looking like a team. If there was ever a time to go into big games, it’s now.”

United’s surge under Solskjaer has seen them force their way into the Premier League’s top four, but their upturn in form is yet to impress the European oddsmakers and they remain unfancied in the Champions League.

That does not concern Solskjaer, however.

“I think the squad is very capable of winning against any opponent,” he said.

“When we go into games confident as we are now, in form, we are looking forward to the game.

“We can’t look too far ahead, we’ve got to look at PSG now and make sure we go through and take the next challenge as it comes.

“But I’ve been very pleased with the attitude. I’ve said to the boys, we have to keep working every single day.

When we work hard, we work hard. When we have lighter training, we concentrate. Then we can improve and maybe surprise people.”
