Ole Gunnar Solskjær wants another big Old Trafford night against PSG | Jamie Jackson | Football

Ole Gunnar Solskjær was again note-perfect when stating it has been too long since a great European night for Manchester United at Old Trafford.After 10 wins in 11 games under their interim manager, United supporters are enjoying the ride and the attacking style of play he has brought back to the club. In relishing the prospect of United’s first ever meeting with Paris Saint-Germain in Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 first leg, Solskjær was once more in tune with those in the stands. Yet his populist act is backed up by a real sense that PSG can be eliminated from the competition.

That was Sir Alex Ferguson’s final European game, a 2-1 loss in March 2013. “We had Bayern too [under David Moyes in 2014]. The players and the supporters have been looking forward to this, they have always been special these nights. Maybe my last [as a player] was Roma when we won 7-1.

Modern football is all about man-management and his has been impeccable, particularly when compared with his predecessor.Quick guideFollow Guardian sport on social media Show HideTwitter: follow us at @guardian_sportFacebook: like our football and sport pagesInstagram: our favourite photos, films and storiesYouTube: subscribe to our football and sport channels Photograph: Chesnot/Getty Images Europe Was this helpful? Thank you for your feedback. Anthony Martial, for one, believes Mourinho’s sacking has liberated United. “We have got a coach who has different intentions and we are trying to do what we asks,” he said. “Perhaps it is easier to play this style of football and not the style of football he [Mourinho] asked. When our new coach came in he had a lot of confidence, a lot of determination, that was really helpful. We are trying to pay him back in kind and things are working out well at the moment.”This, again, will chime sweetly for fans who grew, in the main, to detest Mourinho’s dour approach. All managers require luck and the stars have aligned for Solskjær with regard to the absences of PSG’s Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier through injury.“Any team that is missing players like Neymar, Cavani,...
