Old Trafford was rocking throughout Manchester United’s Europa League match against Barcelona. They advanced to the Europa League Round of 16 by defeating their Spanish opponents 2-1. One of the spectators at the match was Sir Alex Ferguson. The renowned Manchester United manager’s response after Antony’s goal, which ended up being the game-winning goal, has gone viral on social media.
Manchester United came from behind to earn a significant victory, moving closer to the fabled quadruple. After witnessing Sir Alex Ferguson’s endearing response to Antony’s score against Barcelona, the crowd felt “pumped.” The difference for Erik ten Hag’s team came from Antony’s introduction during the break.
Erik ten Hag will be really happy with this outcome and performance. He’ll also be pleased that he got the club’s most successful manager to stand up and pump his fist. The 81-year-old great was seen sitting next to former Leeds United manager Howard Wilkinson at the Theatre of Dreams.
Old Trafford erupted in jubilation with Antony’s goal as Fergie eagerly cheered, and the veterans both rushed out of their seats. The fiery Scotsman, infamous for treating people like hair dryers, was then spotted pumping his fist. Ten Hag’s contributions to the team since taking over in the summer are immensely valued by Sir Alex, and the two recently had dinner together.
