Manchester United’s incredible 3-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday will be remembered for many years to come.
The Red Devils looked to be on their way out of the competition after losing 2-0 to the Ligue 1 side at Old Trafford a fortnight previously.
And with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer missing 10 senior players for the second leg - including Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard - it looked like mission impossible.
But Romelu Lukaku’s second-minute goal gave them hope.
That hope appeared to be dashed 10 minutes later when Juan Bernat made it 1-1, meaning United needed another two goals.
Lukaku notched his second of the game on the half-hour mark but it seemed that United were just going to fall short.
That was until VAR gave them a controversial penalty, which Marcus Rashford smashed home in the 94th-minute to complete a quite incredible comeback.
At full-time, United players went wild with many running over to the travelling fans in the far corner.
But not Lukaku.
He was seen consoling PSG defender Presnel Kimpembe immediately after the match.
And now, French outlet RMC Sport have revealed what Lukaku said to the 23-year-old Frenchman.
“That’s it, this is the nature of football,” Lukaku said. “There are times when you learn, even if you’re world champion.”
Classy from Lukaku.
Of course, Kimpembe was in France’s squad for the World Cup last summer and winning the trophy will be the highlight of his career.
However, that devastating loss to United in the Champions League will take some getting over - even for a World Cup winner.News Now - Sport News
