Man United: Herrera stays optimistic despite PSG defeat

The United caretaker manager claimed PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe was "very lucky" not to be sent off for a second bookable offence after a foul on Luke Shaw before giving the French champions the lead.

Without two of its usual front three, the French league leaders commanded the midfield instead, with Marco Verratti often the orchestrator.

"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. The game was Solskjaer's first outing in Europe since taking charge. We needed a little time to adapt.

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. "We knew they wanted to score and we did it".

United will be without Paul Pogba in the second leg next month in Paris after he received a second yellow card in the 89th minute for a lunge on Dani Alves.

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

But having come off the bench to score the victor in the 93rd minute of the 1999 final against Bayern Munich, Solskjaer is the man who epitomised more than most the "never say die" attitude of many Sir Alex Ferguson Manchester United teams.

The home side never recovered their composure as PSG produced a stunning second-half display to all but book their place in the last eight despite David de Gea's best efforts in the United goal.

Twenty years after winning the Champions League as a United player, this was Solskjaer's first taste of the competition in management having only previously coached Molde in his native Norway and Cardiff before being hired by United.

Wenger was also critical of United at half-time, before they had even conceded, saying: 'We predicted Man United's problems before the game.
