The three words Man Utd legend Eric Cantona said after win over PSG

MANCHESTER UNITED legend Eric Cantona had a simple three-word assessment for his former club’s incredible comeback win over Paris Saint-Germain.



The Red Devils, without 10 first-team stars including Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard, came from 2-0 down from the first leg to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

Romeu Lukaku scored a first-half brace either side of a Juan Bernat goal, but a dramatic injury-time sequence saw United awarded a penalty for a handball on Presnel Kimpembe.

Marcus Rashford stepped up to fire past Gianluigi Buffon and make it 3-1 on the night and 3-3 on aggregate and complete a remarkable turnaround to put United into the last eight.

That sparked jubilant scenes amid the players and away fans and among those celebrating in the stands were several United icons, including Cantona, Patrice Evra and Sir Alex Ferguson.

And Cantona told United’s official Twitter account post-match: “I love it. I’m so happy! I’m so happy.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now won 14 of his 17 matches in charge and is seen as a shoe-in to take up the job on a permanent basis in the summer.

The Norwegian boss has steered United into their first quarter-final since 2013-14 and despite being written off pre-match, he insists they always had faith they could overturn the first-leg deficit.

"We always believed. That's the thing,“ Solskjaer told his post-match press conference.



That's the thing. We set out the plan, it wasn't about having the ball and outplaying them.

“Because if you give them too much space and time, with [Kylian] Mbappe, you saw a few times in the first-half when we missed our defensive shape they threw us straight away.

"The plan was to get the first goal, be in the game with five or 10 minutes to go and we were.

“The belief in the boys was just what we hoped for. Of course, there was a great start. We set out a plan to get the first goal.

“We didn’t expect it after two minutes, but that made it more open for us. We wanted many goals in the game.”

Kudos to Manutd, they surprised everybody. PSG have some problem with squad in balance, why spent a lot of money on a single player when you can get two or  three world-class player with same amount of money.

Anyways, I know PSG have their problems - doesn't everyone?


ManUtd won on the night despite missing 10 senior players - No one should try to take this away from the boys, they were absolutely fantastic  :<3
