‘Solskjaer must be happy with that’ – PSG captain

Thiago Silva admits Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must have been happy with what he saw when the Manchester United boss watched PSG on Sunday night.

Solskjaer travelled to Lyon immediately after United’s 1-0 win over Leicester on Sunday afternoon to scout his side’s Champions League last-16 opponents.

The United boss saw PSG fall to their first Ligue 1 defeat of the season, with Lyon coming from behind to win.

“Solskjaer must be happy with what he saw,” PSG captain Silva said. “We started the game well, but then we lost our concentration and did not have a good first half.

“For me, too, it was difficult. The second half was better but that was not enough. We missed a lot of things. We need to be more focused when we do not have the ball, for example.

“Solskjaer possibly walked away from here happy because we did not play really well.”

Silva, though, insists that the result will have no effect on PSG’s ambitions against United on February 12.

“Do not be worried about us,” he added. “Next Tuesday, in Manchester, it will be another competition, another environment, another atmosphere. In the meantime, we have to work between us to show something else.

“It’s going to be a great clash against Manchester. We will be facing a great team. Manchester United are on a run of nine wins in 10 games. To beat them we will have to be at 110 per cent.”
