Manchester United are in action against Barcelona this evening at the Nou Camp looking to book their spot in the semi-final of the competition.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side need to overturn a 1-0 deficit from he first leg following Luke Shaw’s own goal last time out.
The Norwegian boss is up against a strong side tonight with Philippe Coutinho, Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi bound to cause them problems.
But Solskjaer’s nerves will have been calmed after a pre-match chat with Ferguson.
Cameras picked up the duo chatting on the touchline ahead of kick-off and fans love the fact the Scot is showing support for his former player.
The comments from fans came as:
“sir alex singing Ole’s at the wheel,” said one fan.
“He’s definitly telling ole what to do lmao,” said another.
“Student and Master,” concluded a third.
“Lets do it one more time for the gaffer,” added another.
Solskjaer admitted before the match he told his side to play with no fear.
“We can’t wait to get started, it’s going to be a great achievement if we get through,” he said.
“We are going to have to ride our luck and work harder than ever. We need more quality than we had last time.
“We will play with no fear, do what we are good at. If this is going to be an open game with many goals we stand a better chance than if it’s cagey.
“We can score many goals. We are confident but humble enough to know it’s our hardest night of the season.
“We’ve got to go for it, we can’t sit back and wait for them to make mistakes – they don’t make many. We will go at them.
“We played five at the back last time, it was a bit cautious but we tried to stop Messi.”
