Solskjaer: Cardiff need a miracle

Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that if his side are to avoid relegation then they will need a miracle greater than Manchester United’s Champions League victory over Bayern Munich, Sky Sports reports.

Solskjaer scored one of the injury time goals as United turned around a deficit to claim an unlikely Champions League trophy over a decade ago.

Despite the spectacular win, the Norwegian believes his side will need something even bigger to avoid the drop with just two games remaining against Newcastle and Chelsea.

"If we stay up it would definitely be a bigger miracle than Barcelona in 1999," Solskjaer said.

"That night it was possible, and in football anything is possible. So we need to give ourselves a chance in front of our fans against Chelsea.

"It takes belief, togetherness, a team that goes the extra mile, and a hero stepping forward and doing something magical.”

If the Welsh club are to stay up, at the very least they will need victories in their final two games and will still require help from other results.

Despite the looming threat of relegation, the 41-year-old still believes that there is a chance for survival and believes the home crowd on the final day of the season may have the last say.

"It's still possible that we are out of the bottom three if we win this weekend. We have got to give ourselves something to play for in the last game by winning this game.

"One of the key points is just imagine how this place (Cardiff City Stadium) will be next weekend if we have got something to play for, when we have got something to play for.

"Let's give ourselves a chance by beating Newcastle, because this place will be absolutely rocking if we are in with a chance."
