World-renowned former Manchester United (Man United) coach Alex Ferguson clenched his fists and cheered as he watched Manchester United win against Barcelona.
Manchester United won 2-1 in the second leg of the 2022/23 European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League playoff FC Barcelona held at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on the 24th (Korean time).
Manchester United, who drew 2-2 in the last game, succeeded in advancing to the round of 16 with a total lead of 4-3 in the first and second games.
Manchester United coach Eric Turnhagh couldn’t easily change the atmosphere that was dragged throughout the first half after he conceded the opening goal from a penalty kick to Roberto Lewandowski in the 14th minute of the first half.
But the second half was different. At the start of the second half, head coach Turn Hagh replaced Boot Behorst, who was taller than 2m, and replaced Anthony with good skills. Manchester United, who changed the atmosphere with a substitution, balanced the game again with Fred’s equalizer in the second half of the second minute.
Substitute Anthony then scored a come-from-behind goal in the 28th minute of the second half, shaking the Barcelona goal with a left-footed shot. In the end, Manchester United won the game and settled in the round of 16.
Manchester United’s victory over Barcelona allowed the team’s legendary manager, Alex Ferguson, to rejoice and erase memories of their past defeat.
Ferguson faced Barcelona in the 2008/09 and 2010/11 UEFA Champions League finals in succession while he was in charge of Manchester United, but couldn’t stop Lionel Messi’s great performance and lost 0-2 and 1-3, respectively. After the game먹튀검증, the scene of Ferguson shaking his hand was captured on the broadcast screen and became a hot topic.
Ferguson, who visited the stadium that day, erased the past defeat by winning as a supporter of Manchester United in 12 years. When Anthony’s come-from-behind goal went in, Ferguson clenched his fists and made a gesture that seemed to intuit victory. Afterwards, he praised Manchester United’s performance with extended applause and a bright smile.
Recently, Ferguson seems to have fallen in love with Turn Haag’s mercenary skills.
Not long ago, the British media reported that Ferguson, who is over 80 years old, is following Manchester United’s home and away matches, and that the famous man who wrote a page in football history fell in love with ‘Turn Hagh Magic’.
Then, ahead of the Barcelona match, manager Turn Hagh and manager Ferguson raised the topic of meeting former and current Manchester United managers over dinner.
When it was revealed through the British media that he had a private meeting with coach Ferguson on the 22nd and had various conversations, Turn Hagh said at a press conference before the Europa League match, “The meeting with Ferguson was great. He shared his knowledge. “He wants to help Manchester United. He is so committed to Manchester United that he still feels like his club.”
In the match against Barcelona that followed the meeting, coach Turn Hagh led the team to victory with a spirited mercenary technique reminiscent of the past ‘Fergie days’. In addition, it made Ferguson’s past disgrace unforgettable, proving that the conversation between the two would come as a positive influence for Manchester United in the future.
It was like returning the victory to Ferguson’s dinner.
