The reactions of three former Manchester United players to their stunning comeback victory over Paris Saint-Germain have been revealed – and they were very different. 

Rio Ferdinand, Owen Hargreaves and Michael Owen were in the BT Sport studio on Wednesday night to cover the Champions League round of 16 second leg clash. 

A video released on Twitter shows how the pundits reacted to the award of United’s 93rd-minute penalty – thanks to VAR – which was scored by Marcus Rashford.

When the referee pointed to the spot following Presnel Kimpembe’s handball, Ferdinand leaped to his feet with a huge scream, and yelled ‘Come on!’

As Rashford prepares to take the penalty, both Ferdinand and Hargreaves are stood in anticipation, while Owen is sat back, arms folded.

As the strike hits the back of the net, Ferdinand yells in delight again, while Hargreaves applauds. 

Ferdinand however is in his element, shouting ‘Yes!’ and ‘Get out!’ in his delight. He says: ‘Character, that’s what it’s about. The young lads coming in the team and playing.’

He then seems to take a pop at former United manager Jose Mourinho’s playing style, as well as celebrating current interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Ferdinand said: ‘Sitting back and just defending the whole time, it don’t happen here. Yes Ole! What a pen!’ 

Throughout all this, former United striker Owen remains silent, unmoved by the dramatic scenes in Paris. 

Owen’s loyalties were perhaps divided – although he played for United between 2009 and 2012, he started his career at their arch rivals, Liverpool, and is currently an ambassador for the Anfield club.

Rashford’s penalty sent United into the Champions League quarter finals with a 3-1 second leg win, having lost the first game 2-0. It is the first time any side has come back from a two-goal defeat at home in the knockout stage of this competition.
