A beautiful Manchester United run under interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been brought to an end by Paris Saint-Germain.
Unbeaten in 11 games, Solskjaer saw his astounding record brought to an end, as his side was dealt its first defeat in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 encounter.
Man United lost the match 2:0 with goals by Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe.
Atfterwards, Solskjaer said of the challenge facing his side: “It looked like the game we thought it was going to be. The first goal, when they got that one – it’s a poor goal to give away – then they got the momentum.
“You can see that we’ve not played games at this level for a while and we’ll have to learn from this experience. It’s not going to be a season defining one for us.
“Mountains are there to be climbed. You can’t lie down. Today was a reality check on the level from the top teams.”
Solskjaer added on the knocks picked up by two in-form performers, with Lingard and Martial forced off at just before and during half-time: “They’re muscle injuries so we have to wait a couple of days.”
