Now that Man United have been knocked out of the Champions League, Solskjaer's men will only have to play just five games until the end of the season. After they sacked (Jose) Mourinho, I felt they needed to give the job to someone who had a link to the club and that's what they've done.

"If he was surrounded by class players, you'd get to see the real Pogba".

With a game in hand on Maurizio Sarri's side too, Neville revealed that with a busy schedule coming up in the next two weeks, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should consider resting players for the City game, so that they remain fresh for the crunch top-four clash against Chelsea just four days later.

The 44-year-old tore into several United players after a performance that he clearly felt wasn't good enough from a United team.

"I don't know where it came from". That's what's happening now.

"It was 4-0 over the two legs but it hasn't been an embarrassment and it could have been more if Barca wanted to turn on the style", he said.

However, Fred suffered the humiliation of being nutmegged by Lionel Messi in the lead-up to FC Barcelona's first goal at Camp Nou.

We have to look at it realistically that nobody really fancied United to win the tie. There was always a lot of talk about PSG and what they achieved there, but the difference between PSG and Barcelona is that the Spanish giants have more experience and they have more match-winners. It was in the 2009 Club World Cup final when he scored a victor to give Barcelona the trophy.

During the past couple of months, United have been on the up but this loss to Barcelona has brought the reality back at Old Trafford indicating to the very fact that Solskjaer still needs to work really hard in order to compete with the best in Europe.

"We're on with the job and have spoken to the players about it as well", Solskjaer said of United's need to improve.
