Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken after his side’s 3-1 win over Paris St Germain, PSG, in the second leg of the UEFA Champions League round of sixteen.
United went into the game on the back of a 2-0 loss at home to PSG in the first leg. However, the team sprang a surprise when they traveled to Paris for the second leg.
A brace from Lukaku and a penalty from Marcus Rashford ensured the Red Devils secured a spot in the last eight of the competition. The tie ended 3-3 on aggregates with United qualifying based on away goals.
Speaking about the performance of his side, Solskjaer said:
“I’ve got some fantastic memories,” the 1999 treble hero said. “Eh, football – that’s what it gives you.
“It’s special when you’re a coach or a manager doing it with your staff and players.
“The dressing room in there was absolutely unbelievable, just to see the whole club together with the owners, ex-managers, ex-players. Great atmosphere.”
Alex Ferguson, Eric Cantona and co-owner Avram Glazer were among those who visited the players in the dressing room to celebrate with them.
“I keep doing this job as best as I can every single day and let’s see where it takes us,” he said.
“It’s been a fantastic time with the players and the staff I’ve got working with me. I’m going to enjoy this job as long as I’ve got it.
“If it’s another two or three months, however long it is, I’m going to enjoy it, I’m going to smile.”
