'This man is insane, he doesn't need to prove himself in the prem, best of all time, no doubt.' added another. I've said all along this isn't going to change overnight and the next few years are going to be massive for us to get to the level where Barcelona and other teams are at the moment.

Solskjaer admitted in the immediate aftermath of their 3-0 defeat in Barcelona, which sealed a 4-0 quarter-final win on aggregate for the Catalan giants, that he faces a major rebuilding job to re-establish United among the European elite.

"We had five uncomfortable minutes because they came out strong", said Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde.

They were in command after the mercurial Argentine master put them 2-0 up, although they had to ride their luck a bit in the opening exchanges as United threatened a stirring comeback.

Man United are in a hole, having gone down 1-0 at home to Barca in the first leg.

Barca now progress to the semi-final stage of the competition, as they bid to win their sixth Champions League title.

Former Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho rubbed salt into the Red Devils' wounds when he scored a signature curled-shot from outside of the box, securing his side's place in the semi-finals.
