Champions League: Why Coutinho changed his mind about Manchester United move

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer celebrates with his teammates after winning the final of the Champions League against Bayern Munich 26 May 1999 at the Camp Nou Stadium in Barcelona

A 1-0 home defeat against Barcelona, the Euro Club Index number one team, has made United's chance even more remote and they are now given just a 9% chance of claiming a place in the last four of the Champions League.

The former Liverpool midfielder has been linked with a departure from the Camp Nou this summer, just 18 months after becoming the Catalan club's most expensive signing following a £142 million move.

"We carry a goal threat but, of course, what we did against PSG as a team must give everyone a huge confidence boost, because that experience was probably the best they have had for many years, those players".

'We will be true to our style but we are also aware of what they have in attack and the game can't become you attack us, we attack you.

"We can be in the tie in the 93rd minute", he said - referencing Marcus Rashford's stoppage-time penalty against PSG that put them through to the last eight. I am sure he wants to prove a point and prove point for us as well.

Camp Nou will host Tuesday's big game as United try to come from behind.

United have scored only once at home in five European games, but they have proven to be better away from home.

Ousmane Dembele started, while the likes of Gerard Pique, Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho were all given breathers with this game in mind. "If we get the first goal it would be so important". You can't live from what has happened before.

"For us now we need to forget about the past".

Manchester United forward Alexis Sanchez has been recovering from a hamstring injury which he picked up in February during United's 3-2 win over Southampton in the Premier League. "He's been injured, not had a fantastic season so far, and let's hope he can end the season great". We know we can turn things round. And it has prompted talk about the 26-year-old's future, with Manchester United one of the clubs interested in his signature, as per the Sport.

"You have to stand up for yourself against big boys because you're going to play against top players in the world and then you can't look round and always ask for help".
