Solskjaer admits PSG showed United another level

PSG's Kylian Mbappe set the benchmark for young French players winning the World Cup at the age of 19

Manchester United's interim manager recorded his first defeat after the Red Devils were handed a 2 - 0 result against French giants, Paris Saint Germain, PSG, on Tuesday evening.

Under Jose Mourinho Manchester United were pretty lucky to get into the knockout stages of the Champions League but they'd been really unlucky to draw PSG in the last 16 of the competition.

Angel Di Maria was the architect of both goals on his return to Old Trafford as PSG more than coped without injured duo Neymar and Cavani.

They started to control the game. He obviously hates YOUR football team and has no interest in synchronised swimming.

"Ultimately, winning the Premier League has to be the aim for a club of United's size". "Our players today, are disappointed, of course, but I also think they know we need to step up our level to get to the level we want to get to", added the Norwegian after suffeiong his first defeat since taking over 12 games ago in December.

"We've got Chelsea and Liverpool in the next two games so whoever feels sorry for themselves will not play the next game", Solskjaer said.

Zaniolo continued his superb breakthrough season by finding the net twice in six second-half minutes before Adrian Lopez pegged one back in the 79th minute.

"No, not at all because at this club we have to bounce back and we are in a tournament, the Champions League, where it's always going to be hard, but our bread and butter is the (domestic) league so (I'm) not afraid of that".

Di Maria, who struggled in his only season at United before being offloaded to PSG in 2015, sent in the corner that Kimpembe raced into the penalty area unchecked to meet with a volley. After having a bottle thrown at him by United fans, Di Maria helped to complete a counterattack by crossing for the advancing Mbappe to score.

"But we are not going to lose time thinking about what happened".

"The second goal was quality by them".

And he was quick to torment his old team further just seven minutes later, slipping a low cross in from the left into the middle for Kylian Mbappe to steer beyond a helpless David De Gea.

And any hope of a United comeback in Paris suffered another huge blow when Pogba was dismissed late on for catching Dani Alves with a raised boot.
