Solskjaer speaking to Manchester Evening News, said; “Nemanja will travel with us definitely, Ander won’t, he is out for a little while.
Solskjaer insisted on not using that infamous night in Barcelona in 1999 in his team talk.
“No I won’t because it was against Bayern Munich, it was a final, it was different,” Solskjaer replied when asked whether he will speak to his players about the 1999 comeback.
“We will use the PSG (match), we will use Juventus away, we have beaten some good teams away from home this year, and played against some great players.
“We had (Barcelona) flustered at times here as well. Yes, they controlled the game towards the end, they had the possession but they never really bothered us in our own half.”
