Manchester United were outclassed by Barcelona at the Nou Camp, in the second leg of the quarterfinal clash on Tuesday night.
A classic Lionel Messi performance in which he scored a brace and a wonderful finish from Philippe Coutinho ensured a 3-0 win against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side who were second best on the night.
United are now out of the Champions League and have a top four battle to fight, and Solskjaer told his players he wants to build a Manchester United squad capable of challenging Barcelona after the 3-0 defeat at the Camp Nou on Tuesday.
Solskjaer admitted after the game that there will be ‘one or two additions’ to the side and that he wants to strengthen four main areas.
“We need to create an environment of top, world-class attitude every single day,” said Solskjaer.
“We’ve got a lot of good players to work with but as I have said, we have a rebuilding job. It started with coaches, players and of course one or two additions in the summer.”
Speaking after the defeat to Barcelona, Solskjaer turned his attention to the Everton clash as he stressed on the importance of qualifying for the Champions League next season as he said: “We want to play these games again next year, so we have a massive week coming up with Everton, [Manchester] City and Chelsea.
“They’re disappointed but there’s no point dwelling on what could have been. It could have been different if we had started better and we got the first goal, but now we have to concentrate on next week.”
