Champions League: I Want To Win The Treble As A Coach – Solskjaer

Published

on

Manchester United Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed his desire to win the Treble as a coach after winning it as a player in 1999.

Solskjaer played a major role in Manchester United treble-winning season in 1999 when he scored a last-gasp winner in the final against Bayern Munich at the Nou Camp.

Bayern Munich were stunned by two late goals from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as United won the Trophy.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is back in Nou Camp as a coach with the hope of overturning a 1-0 deficit in the second leg of the Uefa Champions League quarter final clash against Barcelona on Tuesday.

“I think we’ve got to set that standard,” Solskjaer told ESPN FC. “We can do it one day.

“I’ve seen [the goal] so many times. I cannot remember exactly what I felt because I was so focused on my job.

I think it was bigger for everyone else around. I just did my job as a striker, something I’d done so many times before.

“It’s going to be more and more difficult. Football has changed and there are more and more clubs with more and more money. In England, it’s hard to get a top six place.

“Then you’ve got Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus — it will be difficult but you can never say impossible.”

“I don’t believe in fate but I do believe that you get what you deserve,” Solskjaer said. “Sometimes things are meant to be if you really go it.

“I’m not the type to think: ‘This makes me proud.’ I will feel the butterflies, I will be excited. I cannot wait to get going because it’s the biggest stage. It’s against the best club of the last 10 or 15 years. Since [Pep] Guardiola took over they have been absolutely brilliant.”

Barcelona have not won the champions league since 2015, while United won their last champions league trophy in 2008.
