“The focus is on this game,” he told the club website. “We have to take care of this. On the other hand, we have to think from Monday to City.

‘Everyone is very important to us and we must ensure that everyone feels appreciated. Because they contribute to us behind the scenes in training. We will make some changes for this game. “
Bruges belongs to the top of the Belgian First Division and falls into the Europa League after having played in the group stage of the Champions League, and Solskjaer is wary of their opponents and warns that they have a winning mentality.
‘They are not used to losing. They have lost one match in the competition. Good team, pulled away against Real Madrid. Two draws against Galatasaray. Two tight games against PSG and one game in which they have lost.
Solskjaer believes that Club Brugge will offer a strict test after leaving the Champions League

“I think Philippe [Clement, Brugge’s manager] has only lost four games since coming, so he is a manager’s top coach. He must have seen the potential in this club, because he won the competition with Genk last year and then came to Bruges. “
He admitted that United was faced with a tough draw, despite the fact that they top their group, but said the players were enthusiastic for the test.
‘When you are out, you are out and there are no second chances. But we are looking forward to it. We know it is a difficult draw.
‘Normally you think that if you win your group as comfortably as we do, you have a nice draw and then a Champions League team ends up there. So it’s a tough draw, but we’re looking forward to it. ”
