Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that his team will win against RB Leipzig tomorrow night, even though they only need a draw to progress.
After the loss to PSG at Old Trafford last time in the Champions League, the Red Devils’ hopes of advancing to the knockout rounds of the competition are hanging by a thread.
Solskjaer’s men travel to Leipzig to face the team that came close to defeating European champion Bayern Munich at the weekend.
Man United comfortably beat them last time, but with a next-round spot on the line, you have to think it won’t be that easy.
United only need one point, and you’d think it’s unwise for them to get greedy against such strong competition, but Solskjaer insists they will go for the win.
It is cited by the BBC saying:
“You cannot sit back and wait for a 0-0 draw. That is not in our genes, it is not in the genes of the team, it is not in the genes of the club, we want to go out and win a game ”.
These are brave words from the Man United manager, especially considering that we are talking about a team that was defeated to eliminate Istanbul Basaksehir on the road.
Solskjaer cannot afford to let his pride prevail over what is needed, and that’s just one point. Your naivety could cost you a lot by his side.
