Manchester United are hopeful striker Marcus Rashford will be in contention for Wednesday's Champions League quarter-final first leg against Barcelona after recovering from an ankle injury, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said on Tuesday.

"I remember Ole as a great team mate, I was 17 and he was a veteran and for sure he helped me adapt to the club, to the country and to the city", Pique added. "I was injured or just coming back from being injured for the first game [against PSG], so it was nice to be able to test yourself against the best, and I think PSG are one of the best teams in the world".

Manchester United never know when they are beaten and must not be underestimated by Barcelona in the Champions League, says Gerard Pique. He's the top scorer in history against English teams with 22 of his 106 goals coming against English competition.

Solskjaer talked down the fact that he needs to have a big impact against Barca if United are to progress, saying it will be a team effort if they are to upset the odds, as well as reassuring fans that Pogba is going nowhere. We have to concentrate from the first minute to the last minute of the tie. I'm happy to see him in charge of Manchester United, he's done a great job, he's won lots of games playing much better.
