Solskjaer warns that PSG defeat is not season defining; refuses to accept tie is over

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned tonight’s 2-0 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain won’t be season defining, and his Manchester United players will learn from it.

The Norwegian was clearly unimpressed with suffering his first defeat as United manager but he refused to accept the tie is offer, despite considering two away goals which gives the French giants a massive advantage towards qualifying for the quarter-finals.

Solskjaer had gone 11 games without a defeat prior to tonight, so it’s essential to offer some perspective after losing his first game.
