Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned Barcelona he feels his team can go all the way in the Champions League this season.

Barcelona will face the Red Devils in the quarter-finals and will be favourites to progress, but Solskjaer said his team’s win over PSG proves they can beat anyone.

“I think we’ve shown against Paris St-Germain that on any given day we can beat a top team,” he said.

”Any team can beat anyone of the eight. There’s still top, top quality. Of course, with Cristiano [Ronaldo] still in it I don’t think it’s opened up that much.

“I believe that you get what you deserve in life, in sports. If you put the work in, if you work hard, show the right attitude, if you go in every single day and do the right things you can maximise your chances.

”So yes, we can go all the way but you’ve got to be lucky and good along the way.”

Manchester United have improved dramatically since Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho at the helm in December after a poor start to the season.

The club have only suffered two defeats under Solskjaer but taking on Barcelona will be his biggest challenge since becoming United boss.
