Nigerian actress, singer, producer and video vixen Cossy Orjiakor says Manchester United can hurt Barcelona at the Camp Nou as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side plot another unlikely Champions League comeback following their 1-0 home defeat.
Cossy was Jiggyman’s guest all through the Big sports breakfast show via Brila FM on Friday morning, where she confirmed that she has been a Manchester United fan for a long time with sweet memories since the Fergie days.
Luke Shaw’s own goal from a Luis Suarez header was the difference in Wednesday’s first leg of the quarter-final at Old Trafford, where United failed to muster a single shot on target but largely shackled Barca’s glut of attackers.
Solskjaer’s men face an uphill battle but they will travel with memories still fresh of their remarkable recovery last month to beat Paris Saint-Germain on away goals after losing the home leg 2-0.
“I think it was a good game,” the popular actress said. “Obviously we were playing against Barcelona, one of the best teams in the world, but we gave them some problems as well.
“They gave us some problems but we know where we can beat them. Now it is one leg gone, you have the other one and we are going to give everything on this one.”
Asked if United could beat the Spanish league leaders, Cossy said: “Of course. If you don’t believe that you can beat them, you just let them go through.
