Manchester United lost 1-0 to Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final first leg, but Paul Pogba knows that it’s far from over. The midfielder had some rousing words for his teammates after the loss at Old Trafford.
“Of course, we saw a team we can beat,” he said after the game. “If you don’t believe that then you just let them go through. We believe we can beat them.”
“We are Manchester United. They are Barcelona but we are Manchester United and we play in the Champions League like they do and we can go through of course. “We are 1-0 down and now go to the Nou Camp but we believe chances will come over there. We have to keep believing,”
He rounded up by saying, “It is a Champions League game and we know we can hurt them as well as they can hurt us.”
The deficit is not huge, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hopeful of recreating the heroics from Paris last month. The Camp Nou will host the second leg next week, and Barcelona will hope to defend their lead to progress. PSG thought the same, but United produced a memorable 3-1 comeback to topple them in the Round of 16.
