Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that coming through a very difficult game is part of a trophy win, comparing the United Experiments with those of 1999.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been reluctant to make too much of a comparison with Manchester United's trophy season 1998/99. But he admitted there were similarities.

United beat Chelsea and Arsenal on their way to FA Cup victory in 1999, which has already been achieved at this year's competition, and on Saturday night in the quarterfinal they face another difficult match against Wolves in Molineux.

Meanwhile, in the Champions League, United managed to break through 2-0 home defeat against Paris Saint-Germain to move last week in the quarter-finals, and late Marcus Rashford sealed victory.

In 1999, returnees were a feature of United's success, in particular the recovery of Roy Keane from Juventus in the semi-finals and a 2-1 victory over Bayern Munich, which would confirm Solskjaer's place in the history of the club.

The Norwegians celebrated in Barcelona and stopped the winner, hoping to move their former team to the fourth European trophy this season as a guardian.

"To win trophies you have to win at least one or two really tough games, they determine the moments," Solskjaer said. "At that time, we beat Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal, and you think that the next time you deserve some luck.

"But the wolves are leaving, what a tough game it can be."

"Comparison with 1999? It's not a challenge to win a league this year, but the challenge is to win the other two trophies."

Twenty years after that glorious victory in Barcelona, ​​Solskjaer laughed at the comments, pointing out that then his shirt number was 20, saying he did not believe in destiny.

"I believe you will get what you deserve in life, in sports," he said. "If you work hard, show the right attitude, you can increase your chances.

"We have shown against PSG that in any day we can win the top team, but then there are so many variables, and in these games things are determined by margins.

"With the VAR, although it's a punishment for me, you can be unlucky and not get it and we could be out there and nobody will remember the performance of PSG."

"We can go to the end, but you have to be happy and good."

The defeat for Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and PSG led to a bid to open the tournament but with a quarterfinal against Barcelona and Cristiano Ronaldo's free score still in the Juventus tournament, Solskjaer was not sure,

"With Cristian still in it, I do not think he has opened so much," Solskjaer said.

"It's going in cycles, Porto won him in 2004, Monaco came to the final, Ajax, never knows. Everyone can win anyone any day."

"You earn fortune, but sometimes it's better to be happy than good."
