Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's Manchester United have received a major boost as the likes of Marcus Rashford and Alexis Sanchez returned to training ahead of their Champions League quarter-final first-leg clash with Barcelona on Wednesday night. "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".
"Paul is looking forward to tomorrow, he's a Man United player, one of our big performers on the big stage, his game against PSG was not his greatest moment but he's only focused on playing tomorrow and I can not not see him playing for Man United next season".
"When the draw was made, you think, "I want to play against teams like this". It's a great example for us.
"That game should remind us that we have to be very concentrated, as United are a very risky team".
"I don't think they have that many players as good as them but still they've got some real quality". Let us know in the comments section below.
"They have always been the biggest team in England", he said.
Barcelona have not lifted the Champions League since 2015 and for Pique there is no pressure. "I came here alone, without my family, I learned a lot and I left a completely different person", he recalled.
"It's a special game for me", he explained. "It is going to be a tough game and we hope to be able to win", he continued.
"I was 17, very young and he was one of the veterans and, for sure, he helped me a lot to adapt to the club, to the country, to the city".
Who will win the Champions League?
"To compare the titles won is something for you all to do". We have done things well this season and that's why we are where we are: [11 points] clear in La Liga, in the Copa del Rey final and in the last eight in Europe. Barca enters as the favorite as it continues to dominate most matches, while United has stumbled a bit as of late in the Premier League and looks to bounce back. "There's a lot of excitement".
