Manchester United fans should lower their expectations, says former Red Devil Mark Bosnich

Mark Bosnich has urged Manchester United fans to stay level-headed after a disappointing run of results under Ole Gunnar Solskajer.

The Red Devils are facing Champions League elimination after losing 1-0 at home to Barcelona in the first leg of their quarter final on Wednesday night.

But, according to Bosnich, it’s miraculous they’re in the last eight to begin with.

When Solskjaer was appointed interim boss in December, the prospect of finishing in the top four and progressing in the Champions League was considered unlikely.

United failed to muster a single shot on target against Barca

Following a record-breaking start, the Norwegian rediscovered the club’s lost hope as they moved briefly into fourth and pulled off a stunning victory over Paris Saint-Germain.

However, four defeats in their last five games have well and truly ended Solkjaer’s honeymoon period – and former United goalkeeper Bosnich has reminded fans where they were before Solskjaer took charge.

“If you said at Christmas, ‘Man United will be playing Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final’, everyone would’ve said you were nuts,” the Aussie told talkSPORT.
