World best keeper now fear Manchester united

Gianluigi Buffon suspects Manchester United are going to be tougher for his Paris Saint-Germain side to beat without sacked Jose Mourinho .

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has won his first three matches as caretaker manager — with Buffon's former Juventus team-mate Paul Pogba scoring four goals in the last two.

The Old Trafford club, who ditched double Champions League winner Mourinho earlier this month after two and a half years in charge, face PSG in the competition's last 16, with the first leg in Manchester on February 12 and the Paris return three weeks later later.

And the Italian goalkeeping legend, who moved to the French capital last summer, said: “Will it be more difficult against Manchester United without Jose Mourinho? That is maybe the case.

“But that is not down to the value of the coach.

“Someone like Pogba has got something to prove. I think it will be a more complicated challenge.”

Asked about finally winning the Champions League with PSG, the 40-year-old said: “They’re certainly among the big contenders, but the strongest team doesn’t always win. Especially in a shorter tournament.

“It’s sometimes the bravest who win.”
