Solskjaer finally breaks his silence on Neymar's injury ahead of PSG clash

Solskjaer finally breaks his silence on Neymar's injury ahead of PSG clash

11 Feb 2019, 10:55

With Neymar ruled out of both ties against Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League last 16, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has termed the Brazilian’s injury as ‘unfortunate’.

PSG has been dealt with three injury concerns ahead of the United clash with Neymar ruled out while Edinson Cavani and Marco Verratti being doubts. Cavani was forced off at half-time in PSG's win over Bordeaux on Saturday and coach Thomas Tuchel said it was 'unlikely' the Uruguayan would feature and did not 'expect good news'.

Solskjaer revealed that Neymar being ruled out is a blow to the fans who would have loved to see Neymar dazzle, “Unfortunately, he cannot play. When you play against the best teams, you want to play against the players. The crowd want to see the best players. Too bad for Old Trafford. I have played a couple of games when we played Real Madrid and Ronaldo and Figo and all those were coming to Old Trafford. That gives it an extra edge.

“Unfortunately for Neymar, he is injured but, of course, he is a quality player. I think our right-back thinks it is not too bad he will not be here!”

Manchester United welcome Paris Saint Germain to Old Trafford on Tuesday 12th February at Old Trafford in an 11 PM (EAT) kick off.
