Man United Must Forget 1999 Nou Camp Heroics


Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called on his players to forget the heroics of the 1999 Champions League final and concentrate on their Champions League quarterfinal second leg clash with Spanish champions Barcelona.

The Red Devils produced one of the greatest comebacks in Champions League history when they scored twice in added time to beat German champions Bayern Munich 2-1 during the 1999 Champions League final held at the Nou Camp.

Manchester United will visit the scene of that famous triumph when they travel to Barcelona for the second leg of their Champions League quarterfinal tie on Tuesday night.

Ahead of the game, Solskjaer told reporters that his players have to focus on the here and now rather than the heroics of the past.

Manchester United have not had the best of the last month including the first leg meeting which ended in a 1-0 loss to Barcelona.

England international Luke Shaw put through his own net for the only goal of the game for the Spaniards and Manchester United will have to score at least two goals to have the chance of securing a last four berth ahead of Barcelona.

Manchester United warmed up for the Barcelona game with a 2-1 victory over West Ham United in a Premier League clash at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.
