Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed how it felt to lose for the first time as caretaker boss.

Solskjaer’s unbeaten start to life at United came to an abrupt end as PSG won 2-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Paul Pogba was also sent off as Angel Di Maria returned to haunt his former club and help Paris St Germain take control of this Champions League last-16 tie.

The first competitive encounter between these sides went the way of the visitors at Old Trafford, where the Norwegian’s first European game in charge saw the end of his 11-match unbeaten start to life in the hotseat.

Solskjaer faced the media ahead of the Red Devils’ FA Cup clash against Chelsea on Monday night, revealing what he did after Tuesday night.

“I’ve been back home actually, been to Norway, nice to see the family but it’s a different feel of course,” he told reporters.

“I hate losing games, the boys hate it, they’ve been down but there’s no point dwelling on it, there’s big games on good teams coming up and we need to dust ourselves down.

“You’ve got to bounce back at this club, always have challenges and away against Chelsea is tough. Let’s make sure the next two days in training we’re ready on Monday. We know there was a spell against PSG, 7,8 10 mins we lost our way apart from that we weren’t too bad.”
