Sir Alex Ferguson visits PSG team hotel on morning of Man City clash

Former United legendary coach Sir Alex Ferguson visited the Paris Saint-Germain hotel ahead of their Champions League semi-final second leg clash against Man City on Tuesday night.

PSG face City in the decider after going down 2-1 down on aggregate having been defeated in Paris a week ago and require a brilliant comeback if they are to advance to the final later this month.

Although there has been no formal confirmation of the purpose behind Ferguson’s visit, MEN Sport recognizes that the hotel is currently only hosting the PSG squad, with no other guests currently staying there due to coronavirus constraints.

Ferguson has always vocalized glowingly of current PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino and after his retirement in 2013, the pair struck up a close friendship and went on to share a bottle of red wine at a Mayfair restaurant.

The former Tottenham manager even paid for the meal after the Scot challenged him to name Argentina’s goal scorers in the 1930 World Cup final win against Uruguay. Which he duly did.

Photographers say Sir Alex Ferguson, who was wearing a Manchester United-branded face mask, spent about 1 hour and 20 minutes inside the Lowry Hotel before he was then pictured leaving the building alongside PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Manchester City leads PSG 2-1 from the first leg after second-half goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez canceled out an opener from Marquinhos.

With the second leg scheduled today, PSG will be looking to bounce back and upset Pep, with the winners set to face either Chelsea or Real Madrid in the final on Saturday 29 May.
