Solskjaer insists ‘confidence is high’ ahead of Barcelona clash

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that confidence is high ahead of his sides Champions League quarter-final first leg clash with Barcelona tomorrow night at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer’s side have hit a sticky patch of form as of late, losing three of their last four in all competitions.

However, the Norweigan has revealed that his squad are excited about the prospect of facing Lionel Messi and company.

”Confidence is high,” Solskjaer told his pre-match press conference.

”The result and what we did against PSG and how we have climbed the table, clawing back points. I think the players have given themselves and the supporters great belief.

”We lose games, we should have won. Wolves in the FA Cup we are disappointed with. I can feel the tension, the excitement.

”I felt the mood ahead of PSG home game was different. We have learnt from that PSG game, how we got dragged into making fouls. European football, you have to be more patient in your tackles. Some of these players will have tricks up their sleeves.”
