Marco Verratti believes Manchester United’s Champions League comeback against Paris Saint-Germain was a fluke and believes the French club would have won the match ‘nine out of 10 times’.

PSG appeared to be on course to secure a quarter-final place following a 2-0 victory at Old Trafford, but United registered a dramatic upset in Paris by sealing a 3-1 victory to dump the French champions out of the competition.

Marcus Rashford’s late penalty decided the tie after Presnel Kimpembe was controversially adjudged to have handled the ball in the area.

And Verratti has suggested that United did not deserve to progress to the last eight of the Champions League.

‘Maybe I’m more frustrated than others, but football is like that,’ Verratti told Telefoot.

‘We can’t have everything.

‘The fans are disappointed by the elimination. I’m confident in this team.

‘This match, if we played it 10 times, we would win nine. We must not change much.

‘We have a great coach and some of the best players in the world with Neymar and Kylian.’
