Ashley Young made a brilliant gesture to a Manchester United fan who correctly predicted the side’s win over PSG in the Champions League.
Manchester United dramatically registered a historic win over PSG in the round-of-16 of the Champions League.
Romelu Lukaku scored a brace while Marcus Rashford won it with an injury-time winner, as he kept his calm to beat Gianluigi Buffon from the spot-kick.
The spirits are high at the club after the win, and players still seem to be in celebratory mode. Ashley Young took to Twitter to address a fan who correctly predicted the scoreline and even the goalscorers for the second leg.
The fan wrote, “Honestly got a good feeling about this. Probably either we get totally hammered or we really put on a show. Lukaku with 2. Psg comes back with 1 and rashford fires home 92mins into injury time!”
Ashley Young’s brilliant gesture to the fan:
The tweet went viral almost immediately after Manchester United secured the comeback win at Parc des Princes.
It wasn’t long until the players also took note of the tweet. While Diogo Dalot expressed his shock at the prediction, Ashley Young went one step further.

He promised the fan to send a shirt but also threw a challenge to him. He asked him to predict the score-line between the weekend game between Manchester United and Arsenal. If correct, Young promised to get signatures of all the team members on the jersey as well!
Please tell me you put that bet on…👀🤣 ?! As a well done I’m gonna send you a signed shirt ! But, if you predict the score correctly this Sunday….I’ll get the whole squad to sign it…What do you reckon ?! Deal ?! 🤷🏾♂👹🤘🏾 https://t.co/pG4xo2Rvkn

VAR awarded Manchester United a penalty after Presnal Kimpembe’s handball offence in injury time.
The week has been full of upsets, however. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that his side took inspiration from Ajax’s win against Real Madrid on Tuesday.
The Dutch side produced an incredible performance to defeat the European champions 4-1 at Santiago Bernabeu.
How Twitter reacted..
