"So hopefully we're going to block them". The Red Devils fired Mourinho and have gone undefeated since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
However, just a few days later he was drafted in to take charge till the end of the season when Jose Mourinho was sacked and has embarked on a run of 10 wins and one draw since to completely revive United's fortunes.
"This is all part of the difficulties of life, and you understand how different people's opinions are, and by changing your point of view over time you see how things can be different".
Asked if this was a fortnight which could define his hopes of landing the United job full-time, Solskjaer said that was too simplistic. They've only won once at Old Trafford in Europe this season, scraping 1-0 past Young Boys, drawing 0-0 with Valencia and losing 1-0 to Juventus.
Calls for Solskjaer to be permanent manager when he took over were largely non-existent.
Solskjaer used a famous game from his own career as a signpost to the mindset he expects on Tuesday night. And they were beaten at home at this stage a year ago by Sevilla. Nevertheless, it is definitely bound to be a cracker of a contest, given the fort that is Old Trafford, given the colossal figures United still are at their home and given how PSG can turn tables on their day at any corner of the world. "If there was ever a time to go into big games like this it is now".

Solskjaer has passed all of the tests he has faced as United manager with flying colours so far, but there are still no signs of him getting the job full-time, however were he to negotiate a path into the quarter finals of the Champions League, it would be nearly impossible to deny him the opportunity to become the permanent successor to Mourinho.
PSG's visit is Solskjaer's first Champions League examination and is followed by an FA Cup fifth-round trip to Chelsea and a Premier League encounter with Liverpool at Old Trafford.
"PSG have great players but they have two or three players injured. And I just want my players to go into this game confident and raise their game".
Solskjaer, and Mourinho before him, might have anxious about facing the man who scored five times in the group stages but PSG's attack appears far less daunting without Neymar.
Di Maria, booed every time he was on the ball, fired the first warning shot in the sixth minute.
"I've found out what kind of team we have".
