Ivan Rakitic has been talking about Manchester United ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final clash with the Red Devils.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side booked their place in the last eight by knocking out PSG on away goals, despite losing the first leg 2-0 at Old Trafford.

Rakitic says their performance against the French champions deserves respect from Barcelona.

“Man United is having good results and to score three goals in Paris was incredible,” he said.

“You have to respect Manchester for this comeback, for the organisation and fight in the team with so many young players.

“I have a lot of respect for the British people and the passion which they have for football, the full stadiums.”

Manchester United have struggled a bit since that victory. They’ve lost three of their last four games and were beaten 2-1 last time out against Wolves.
