Manchester United earned a narrow win over Young Boys thanks to a late winner from Maruoane Fellaini to secure a spot in the next round of the Champions League.
With the score level at 0-0 until late on, Young Boys were hoping for a draw, and turned to a few classic time wasting tactics to run out the clock.
In the 82nd minute, Jean-Pierre Nsame was substituted for Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu, and United player Luke Shaw wasn’t a fan of how long Nsame was taking to leave the pitch.

Shaw gave Nsame a helping hand by pushing him towards the sideline, and an angry Nsame turned around and pushed him off.
Luke Shaw then poked fun at the incident on Wednesday, posting a video to Twitter along with the caption ‘just look at it as a last dance mate.’
They certainly did look they were in the middle of a dance routine at one point, as Shaw held Nsame around the waist from behind. The violence at the end probably wouldn’t have received a very good score from the Strictly Come Dancing judges however.

And it was indeed a last dance for Nsame, as Young Boys won’t be participating in the next round of the Champions League. Manchester United and Juventus are the teams Group H who’ll be progressing.
Luke Shaw recently signed a new five-year deal to stay at Old Trafford. He’s played in all five Champions League games this season, and has a goal and an assist from his 11 games in the Premier League.
