Sir Alex Ferguson pays PSG a visit before Champions League clash v Man City

Sir Alex Ferguson visited the PSG team hotel ahead of their UEFA Champions League semi-final second leg against Man City on Tuesday.

City went into the game with a 2-1 aggregate lead over the Ligue 1 champions after their comeback win in Paris last week, and currently lead 2-0 at the Etihad with over 10 minutes remaining (4-1 agg).

But it looks like PSG called on Ferguson to lend a hand to overcome the deficit, although sadly it appears as though they’re simply lacking on the pitch.

The Scot was pictured arriving at the hotel, as per Manchester Evening News, which is where United fans congregated outside on Sunday to protest. By blocking the team bus route to Old Trafford, United fans successfully ensured the game got postponed.

Richard Fay reported: “Photographers say Ferguson, who was wearing a United-branded face mask, spent roughly 1 hour and 20 minutes inside the Lowry Hotel before he was then pictured leaving the building alongside PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.”

We can’t help but wonder what was said about the protests during their conversation. Let’s not pretend it didn’t come up.

Al-Khelaifi is a Qatari businessman who owns and operates the French side. And he was against the European Super League, so at least they were in agreement over the terrible breakaway league.
