(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED COACH, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING: "I believe that you get what you deserve in sports.

If you put your life, effort, determination and everything you have, you get exactly what you deserve." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED COACH, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING: "It was 20 years ago, I used to play with the number 20, we're back at the Nou Camp.

But to go through, we have to perform and we have to deserve it.

You say.

'we're just going to rely on faith,' no." 3.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED COACH, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING: "Belief is massive in a footballer because most of it is… Yeah, everyone's got talent.

Everyone's got a certain ability to play at.

But we've seen ourselves against PSG that we can get back from being 2-0 down against a fantastic team… Of course historically Barcelona is the best, in say the last 10 years, so we know it will be a massive effort." STORY: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United can beat Barcelona and reach the Champions League semi-finals if they "deserve" it.

The Norwegian coach urged his team to play to their strengths, take their chances and not rely on faith or fate.

Barcelona hold a 1-0 lead from last week's quarter-final first leg ahead of the second leg at the Nou Camp on Tuesday (April 16).

"I believe that you get what you deserve in sports," Solskjaer told reporters.

"If you put your life, effort, determination and everything you have, you get exactly what you deserve," he added.

Solskjaer enjoyed the greatest night of his playing career at the same stadium in 1999 as his 93rd minute goal helped Manchester United beat Bayern Munich 2-1 in the Champions League final to complete an historic treble.

"It was 20 years ago, I used to play with the number 20, we're back at the Nou Camp.

But to go through, we have to perform and we have to deserve it.

You say.

'we're just going to rely on faith'," explained Solskjaer.

The Red Devils overturned a 2-0 first leg defeat by Paris St.

Germain in the last 16 to reach the quarter-finals, but Solskjaer said this will be an even more difficult achievement.
