Manchester United boss Solskjaer insists confidence is high ahead of PSG clash

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists confidence is high at the club as they prepare to face Paris Saint-Germain in their Champions League last-16 second leg.

United head into the fixture in the French capital facing a difficult task, with PSG having claimed a 2-0 win at Old Trafford in the first leg last month.

The French champions have swept all before them on the domestic scene this season, holding a 17 point advantage at the top of Ligue 1. Despite the difficulty in overturning the tie, Solskjaer admits his side are full of belief.

”The team, the club, everyone, supporters [have spirit]. We go into every game with confidence and belief and we will do the same against PSG on Wednesday,” Solskjaer told his post-match press conference after the 3-2 win over Southampton at the weekend.

”We know it is an uphill task, but we can do it. It has happened before, this club has had so many great comebacks, but we have got eight straight wins [on the road], confidence is high and, if we are still in the game with 20 minutes to go, who knows?”
