Revealed: Why United Boss and Alex Ferguson Didn’t Speak After PSG Win

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did not speak with Sir Alex Ferguson after the win over PSG on Wednesday.

That’s despite the former United manager entering the dressing room of the victors after the dramatic late win.

Manchester United headed to Paris 2-0 down on aggregate but turned it around to progress to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

A Romelu Lukaku brace and a VAR-awarded Marcus Rashford penalty late on earned United victory on away goals.

Ferguson was in attendance at the Parc des Princes to see the famous victory and entered the dressing room post-match.

But Solskjaer has revealed the pair did not talk, because of the celebrations.

“You don’t make chats now, it’s too noisy,” Solskjaer said when asked if he had spoke to Fergie.

“Great atmosphere of course, and it’s great to see the boss in there.”

Pundit Graeme Souness has hailed United’s performance as one of their best ever.

“Other than when they’ve actually won the tournament, I think that is their greatest ever achievement,” Souness said on Irish TV.

“When you look at the players on the field, I never gave them hope. They’ve always got a chance but it was a very small chance.

“I’m absolutely flabbergasted. They were so well set up.

“It was an example of how you’re not going to be rolled over. They enjoyed a bit of luck on the night but to a man they were heroic.

“I can only think of when they’ve won the tournament as being bigger achievements.

“Some of those players won’t play big parts in Man Utd’s future, but they’ve gone to a team full of big superstars on paper and outmanoeuvred them. They’ve been disciplined in everything they did.

“The only criticism I can offer up is they should’ve got Bailly off sooner than 35 minutes! What a fantastic achievement.”

Manchester United are next in action as they face Arsenal on Sunday.
