Solskjaer’s Man Utd highlight "doesn’t really matter"

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has picked beating Paris Saint-Germain away in the Champions League last season as his best Manchester United highlight so far.

Ironically, that victory in the Parc des Princes came before Solskjaer had even been handed a permanent contract in the role.

United had lost the last-16 first leg 2-0 at home before staging a remarkable comeback and winning 3-1 in Paris.

And Solskjaer believes this has been one of his key higlights from his two years in charge, although he claimed it doesn't matter.

"Probably the PSG away game," he told ManUtd.com.

"The way we fought back and, last minute, Marcus scores the penalty and the dressing-room after, with Sir Alex [Ferguson] and Eric [Cantona], that’s a moment I’ll always remember.

"Then again, we lost in the next round, so it doesn’t really matter. The best moment will be when we lift a trophy."

Solskjaer was also asked to pick his favourite three goals but instead picked five.

"There’s been so many," he answered. "Marcus [Rashford]'s first goal against Cardiff, a free-kick in the first three or four minutes, is like a fantastic start for me and the staff coming in.

"One of the last goals we’ve scored, as I’ve just mentioned, at Southampton. Marcus’s penalty against PSG, of course. Marcus is involved in quite a few of these, to be honest!

“The counter-attacking goal against Brighton [by Bruno Fernandes], fantastic. The counter-attacking goal against Arsenal in the cup, when Jesse [Lingard] scored. That’s maybe one of my favourite ones, because we showed the boys how many times we’ve done that to Arsenal. It’s in our genes those counter-attacking goals, and I love seeing them, I have to say.

"Against Sheffield United [on Thursday], we had the great turn by Paul [Pogba] and the quick exchange of passes, one and two-touch, it’s in the net. I’ve got to say there’s been so many moments, but I hope there’ll be better moments too."
