Solskjaer calls for squad rebuilding after United outclassed by Barca

SHOWS: BARCELONA, SPAIN (APRIL 16, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED COACH, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING: "We knew we were fighting against a good team and good players out there.

So, we know there's work to be done.

We've said and I've said all along that this isn't gonna change overnight.

The next few years are gonna be massive for us to get to the level Barcelona and those teams are at the moment." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED COACH, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING: "I know I've got good players to work with and, as I've said, at the moment we've really, really done well to get to the quarters here.

We've really done well get in a challenge for top four, but we have, as I said, we've got a rebuilding job.

But it starts with the coaches, with the players, and of course, one or two additions." 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) FC BARCELONA COACH, ERNESTO VALVERDE, SAYING: "Messi always gets us out of lots of trouble, that's clear.

He played really well and scored but I think we were facing the game well except for the first five minutes when they arrived at the attack down the centre and we were not organised but I think the match was ours.

It's true there was a goal with this situation, but we're not going to apologise for having Messi." STORY: After their slim hopes of another famous Champions League revival were stopped dead by Lionel Messi and a rampant Barcelona, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted his Manchester United side need a huge overhaul in order to return to Europe's elite.

Although United made a bright start to their quarter-final second leg at the Nou Camp with Marcus Rashford hitting the crossbar early on, they were soon outclassed by Barca, who eased to a 3-0 win for a dominant 4-0 aggregate victory.

Solskjaer has restored United's confidence and overseen a vast improvement in results in his four months in charge since taking the job after Jose Mourinho was sacked in December, giving the team hope of a top-four finish in the Premier League.

He also led the team to a historic comeback from a 2-0 first leg defeat at home to Paris St Germain in the last 16, but the scale of the long term surgery his side needs was laid bare at the Nou Camp, where Barca walked all over his side.

Messi pounced on a wayward pass by United captain Ashley Young to break the deadlock in the 16th minute while midfielder Fred also surrendered possession a few moments later and Messi again capitalised, with his shot squeezing under the usually excellent David de Gea.
