Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that Manchester United players must be patient when diving into tackles against Barcelona ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash.

"I remember him as a great team-mate when I arrived here", he said.

"But if Barcelona are at their best, they will have many chances to pass the tie".

United fell 2-0 to PSG, and though they went on to complete a miraculous comeback in Paris, a similar deficit will not be as easily overturned at the Nou Camp. If you can beat them by scoring a lot of goals you have to do it, because they have a great team and have great history.

Suarez has hit 20 league goals in his last four seasons, including an astonishing 40 in 2015/16, but looks set to fail to reach a double-digit assist tally for the first time since the 2012/13 campaign at Liverpool; sitting on just six with seven games remaining.

"We know that Manchester United are very risky and that we have to play our best game to qualify".

The state has also sponsored removal programs with prize incentives, such as the Python Pickup Program and regular public hunts. The Burmese python is native to Southeast Asia, but in recent decades the big snakes have become a slithering menace in Florida.

"In the Champions League the officiating is more similar to that in LaLiga". "We know we have play against 11 of them".

"It's a special game for me", he explained. I lived here on my own and you learn a lot that way. "They have some fast players and they can make us suffer in certain areas".

One club keenly interested were Barcelona, who had earlier informed Juve of their willingness to sign him, though when it came to satisfying them financially they were hard-pressed to part with the amount needed to win his signature which came as no problem for United.

"The Champions League throws up odd results".

"Pressure would be if we'd never won it or if this was the only title left for us [to win] this season", he said. Again, there is no easy option there, so it is definitely going to be the hardest competition for them to win.

Furthermore, the centre back revealed that his team have not watched last year's tie with Roma again because in his view, there have been other hard moments and you can not look back at the past. They've scored two goals in eight of their last nine games, and it seems likely that they'll find the net here in this one.
