The reactions of three former Manchester United players to the club’s stunning comeback victory over Paris Saint-Germain have been revealed – and they were very different.
Rio Ferdinand, Owen Hargreaves and Michael Owen were in the BT Sport studio on Wednesday night to cover the Champions League round-of-16 second leg clash.
A video released on Twitter shows how the pundits reacted to the award of United’s 93rd-minute penalty – thanks to VAR – which was scored by Marcus Rashford.

The reactions of three ex-Manchester United stars to their win over PSG have been revealed
Rio Ferdinand yelled in delight as Marcus Rashford scored his decisive late penalty in Paris
When the referee pointed to the spot following Presnel Kimpembe’s handball, Ferdinand leaped to his feet with a huge scream, and yelled ‘Come on!’
As Rashford prepared to take the penalty, both Ferdinand and Hargreaves stood in anticipation, while Owen sat back, arms folded.
As the strike hit the back of the net, Ferdinand yelled in delight again, while Hargreaves applauded.
Presenter Gary Lineker, who played for Leicester, Everton, Barcelona and Tottenham, also punched the air.
Ferdinand, however, was in his element, shouting ‘Yes!’ and ‘Get out!’ in his delight. He says: ‘Character, that’s what it’s about. The young lads coming in the team and playing.’

He then seemed to take a pop at former United manager Jose Mourinho’s playing style, as well as celebrating current interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Ferdinand said: ‘Sitting back and just defending the whole time, it don’t happen here. Yes, Ole! What a pen!’
Throughout all this, former United striker Owen remained silent, unmoved by the dramatic scenes in Paris.
Owen’s loyalties were perhaps divided – although he played for United between 2009 and 2012, he started his career at their arch rivals, Liverpool, and is currently an ambassador for the Anfield club.
Rashford’s penalty sent United into the Champions League quarter finals with a 3-1 second leg win, having lost the first game 2-0. It is the first time any side has come back from a two-goal defeat at home in the knockout stage of this competition.
