Manchester United host French giants PSG at Old Trafford tonight in the first-leg of the Champions League round-of-16, and interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to face one of his toughest tests since taking over from Jose Mourinho.

The Norwegian has helped United to 10 victories and a draw in 11 games across all competitions since arriving, and there is huge belief within the Red Devils camp that they can pip PSG to a quarterfinals spot.

The players have been impressive under Solskjaer, and one player who will be hoping to impress against the French heavyweight is France international Anthony Martial.

The 23-year-old has scored thrice and assisted twice in eight games under the legendary striker, and he’ll be hoping to continue that run of form against PSG.

Martial and Solskjaer were both present during the press conference for the Champions League clash, and a French journalist decided to make him his interpreter.

Here is the hilarious moment below:

Martial’s English is definitely improving day by day since his arrival from Monaco few years ago, but United won’t be making him their official French interpreter anytime soon regardless.

With French team national manager Didier Deschamps likely to be watching tonight, the winger will hope to impress and prove himself worthy of a starting berth with Les Bleus after missing out on the squad that won the World Cup in Russia last summer.
