Edinson Cavani will sit out the first leg of Paris Saint-Germain's Champions League encounter with Manchester United, French sports daily L'Equipe and the daily Parisien newspaper reported on Sunday, while club coach Thomas Tuchel described his participation as highly unlikely.
"The forward players at the club are immensely talented and if you give them a bit of a free rein and a bit of organisation they'll score goals and win you games".
"It's about taking the game to the opposition, always believing in yourself". Wins away at Tottenham and Arsenal in recent weeks exhibited United's pace and firepower on the counter-attack, which could be the key to winning this tie.
"I have three good forwards myself".
Solskjaer's managerial record in domestic competitions with United speaks for itself, but Tuesday's match will be his first test against elite European competition.
El Gol Digital claim that Manchester United want to sign the 32-year-old with his time at Spanish champions Barcelona gradually coming to an end.
Since his arrival, the Red Devils have managed to remain unbeaten with eight victories and a draw, with 23 goals scored and six conceded, as they have overturned Chelsea's 11-point difference and now sit fourth in the Premier League.
"We have got through the group stage and PSG are next".
Gianluigi Buffon will start between the sticks, with Thilo Kehrer replacing the injured Thomas Meunier at right-back. However, the club did not say that Cavani would definitely miss Tuesday's match.
PSG said Cavani's length of absence and treatment will be assessed in the next few days.
After 17 years, 656 appearances and nine Serie A titles in Turin, the Italian made the move to PSG last July, and in Paris he looks well on course to take his tally of league titles to 10. I have a lot of respect for PSG, I have a lot of friends. "We need a player like him, and I hope that he plays great - he is ready".
