Solskjaer sets Champions League target for Manchester United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed the team to reach the Champions League final after proving our credentials in last week’s impressive win against Paris Saint-Germain in our Champions League opener at the Parc des Princes.

He told Manchester United’s official website: “[We want to] enjoy it and make the most of it as well because we go out to win every single game of football that we play.

“We’ve got a good quality squad and I feel we can go into any game believing we can win it and I think that shows. We played one of the best teams in Europe [in PSG] and we beat them away from home, so why shouldn’t we aim for the final?”

Meanwhile, we will be looking to secure our first home win of the new season at Old Trafford when Leipzig arrive at Old Trafford, but Solskjaer has played down the importance of home advantage with supporters still unable to attend matches in England amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“At the moment home or away is more or less the same because of course, we don’t have any crowds. I know Leipzig can have eight and a half thousand in their games, so that’s a different scenario,” he said.

“We’re at home, we feel comfortable at Old Trafford and of course we don’t have to travel. It would have been a completely different game with our amazing fans in there.”
