Buffon: PSG made it look easy against Man United

Buffon: PSG made it look easy against Man United

Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe struck in a seven-minute spell just before the hour mark as PSG displayed their credentials to finally become champions of Europe for the first time, especially once they get the world's most expensive player Neymar and Edinson Cavani back from injury.

But Solskjaer admitted that PSG were on "another level" but that he expects his players to respond positively and insisted it was "not impossible" to overturn a 2-0 deficit in the second leg in France on March 6, despite the "big blow" of Paul Pogba being suspended after his red card. "Of course Neymar is hugely important and Cavani is fundamental to us, but football is played on the pitch and we showed that today", Mbappe told RMC Sport.

"I've found out what kind of team we have".

"I was watching with Noah and we said "wow, that's a tough challenge", said Solskjaer on Monday.

Such stretched resources is not what the club's Qatari owners had in mind when a near 400 million euros was splurged on Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in 2017 with the intention to carry PSG to a long-awaited first ever Champions League triumph.

A double from Paul Pogba either side of a sumptuous Anthony Martial strike sealed the win and ensured United prepared for tonight's visit of French champions Paris Saint-Germain in the flawless way.

"In my opinion he needs to play with a good mindset, be positive and realise it's part of his development".

Solskjaer wants United to put the defeat behind them with fixtures against Chelsea and Liverpool in the FA Cup and Premier League respectively up next. Top four is one thing, but Manchester United should be at the top'.

He added: "You can't feel sorry for yourself". PSG could also be in trouble as an item landed at the feet of Luke Shaw in the first half.

A brilliant team goal doubled United's trouble soon after when Mbappe was again too quick for Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly to meet Di Maria's low cross.

Twenty years after winning the Champions League as a United player, this was Solskjaer's first taste of the competition in management having only previously coached Molde in his native Norway and Cardiff before being hired by United.

"We are happy, but it's only half-time in the tie and we need to continue preparing well, because I think in the last 20 minutes we dropped off a bit physically".
