Alex Ferguson Joins Dressing Room Celebration As Manchester Beat PSG 3-1 In Stunning Comeback.

Alex Ferguson joined dressing-room celebrations as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hailed Manchester United’s momentous victory at PSG as a triumph of incredible self-belief.
Manchester United delivered the biggest surprise of the European season so far, earning a remarkable last-gasp 3-1 victory at PSG to advance on away goals rule after a 3-3 aggregate scoreline.
The Red Devils’ interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, had talked up an unlikely comeback for his team coming into this fixture despite losing the first leg 0-2 at Old Trafford.

But interim chief Solskjaer still refused to accept he will land the job full-time despite inspiring one of United‘s greatest ever nights in the Champions League.

The Norwegian praised Marcus Rashford‘s lack of nerves in taking the 93rd minute penalty – awarded on VAR – which sealed a 3-1 victory and a quarter-final spot on away goals.
And Solskjaer was delighted “boss” Fergie – plus fellow legend Eric Cantona – popped in to share the rejoicing after injury-hit United wen through.

And Solskjaer claimed his youngsters lived up to the character shown in that all-time great comeback.
The Norwegian told beIN SPORTS: “It was great to see the boss in there after the game for the first time. “The lads were absolutely magnificent.
“I’m just going to do my best until the summer and see what the club decides. Tonight we have to remember the spirit of Man United.”

And of United’s pre-match attitude to tackling a 2-0 first-leg deficit, Solskjaer said: “Being underdogs is not usual for us at Man United but it was a nice feeling for the boys today – because there are lots of young players and lots of players who’ve not played.

“It’s good for them to just go out and have nothing to lose.
“We just said go out and express yourselves. We know we have to defend more than we have ever done and run more than we have ever done but we’ll get chances and take them.”
Solskjaer saluted England striker Rashford for stepping up in Paul Pogba‘s absence to slot home the spot-kick decider
