Wenger sends message to Solskjaer before the defeat in UCL

Champions League By: Iseghohi Odianosen | 13/02/2019

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has sent a message to Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before the 2-0 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Wenger told beIN SPORTS  "The statistics can sometimes lie. Why? because Rashford played more on the wings with Mourinho and he played through the middle now with Solskjaer and so has more chances to score goals.

MAN UTD 0-2 PSG: Pogba sees red in Red Devil defeat

"The second thing is I must say, when Mourinho left, Man United had five games that were all winnable. And every win makes you stronger and that's what Solskjaer has done as well, he's got young players in.

"What Manchester United is now to me are a counter-attacking team with very mobile players and one player in the middle like Pogba who can create the first difference.

"So it will be interesting tonight to see that... This is what you call in a marriage: the honeymoon. And the honeymoon stops at some point and then you have to come back to reality... maybe you are lucky and you have a longer honeymoon than everybody else." 

Manchester United suffered a 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford with Paul Pogba sent off for a harsh tackle on a PSG player in the dying minute of the clash.
