Solksjaer says game plan was perfect as Man United shock PSG

SHOWS: PARIS, FRANCE (MARCH 6, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER OLE GUNNAR SOLKSJAER, SAYING: "Yeah, we set out a plan, it wasn't about having the ball and outplaying them because if you give this team too much space and time, with (Kylian) Mbappe... you saw a few times in the first half when we missed our defensive shape they went through us straight away so the plan was to get the first goal, be in the game with about five minutes to go or 10 minutes to go and we were." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED MANAGER OLE GUNNAR SOLKSJAER, ON THEIR CHANCES OF WINNING THE TOURNAMENT, SAYING: "Of course we fancy ourselves, we can go all the way and.... we just have to wait for the draw and then take the game as it comes.

Now, we've had loads of injuries, suspensions, but that was maybe a good thing today because we had a fresh team with loads of energy.

We knew we had to defend and be humble enough to work hard and we had a team to do that." STORY: Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said his team always believed they could pull off a remarkable comeback against Paris St Germain to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

United lost the first leg 2-0 at Old Trafford but beat the French champions 3-1 in Paris on Wednesday (March 7) to progress to the last eight on away goals.

Romelu Lukaku put United ahead after two minutes and although PSG equalised, the Belgian grabbed his second before halftime and Marcus Rashford's stoppage-time penalty sealed a famous win.

It continued United's remarkable transformation since Solskjaer took over as interim manager from Jose Mourinho in December and the Norwegian looks increasingly likely to get the job on a permanent basis.
