In fact, the 48-year-old issued a message to the team leading up to the club's crunch European clash.

He said: "As I've said to them this morning as well, trust yourselves, you know we're better than this.

"We've not been able to show it but go out, chest out, enjoy being a Man United player, in the Champions League, on the biggest stage.

"If and when you win the game, you're through to the next round, Michael [Carrick] is going to be in charge. Michael, I have the utmost respect [for], I love Michael to bits. I'm becoming emotional now because he's top.

"They'll be fine. I'll watch them and support the."

Carrick was in charge of Man United on Tuesday, with the club set to appoint Ralf Rangnick as an interim boss until the end of the season.

The 63-year-old is poised to join the Old Trafford outfit on a six-month deal, but will not be in charge this weekend against Chelsea.
