Man Utd vs PSG: French fans march through Manchester with flares before European clash | Football | Sport
Manchester United take on PSG at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening in a huge European tie that’ll have football fans glued to their TVs.
And hours before kick-off, hundreds of Ultras could be seen on video marching and chanting past the National Football Museum in Manchester.
Flares can be seen in all the videos being shared online, and it’s likely there will be a large police presence as kick-off draws closer.
The supporters, however, did not look intent on causing any mischief and were keen on singing the praises of their team.
United have been given a good chance to beat PSG by fans and pundits, having previously been under dogs.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has turned the team’s fortunes around, though, winning 10 of his first 11 games in charge.
The Norwegian spoke before the game about his side’s chances in the game.
“I think it is difficult to compare games, because when they play in the league, they know they’re going to win the league anyway,” he said.
“So they maybe approach games differently to the Champions League.
“It’s always nice to see players live because you get a different impression.
“You see space, different things, different patterns.
“You saw how lightening quick Mbappe was!
“You just go and watch any opponent, but it’s difficult to say.”
Anthony Martial also spoke about United’s new attacking style of play, and why it will help them.
“We have a coach with different approach and we’re trying to do what he’s asking us to do, perhaps it’s easier for us to play this style of football,” he said.
