Man Utd vs PSG Twitter reactions: Manchester United faced their first loss under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
PSG cruised to a 2-0 victory over Manchester United in the first leg of the round-of-16 of the Champions League.
Presnal Kimbembe opened the goalscoring for Paris Saint Germain after Angel di Maria put an excellent ball through a corner. The celebrations went rather controversial as the Argentinian winger was seen hurling abuses at the United fans.
Kylian Mbappe soon doubled the lead with a brilliant goal as he beat the Manchester United defenders with electric pace.
The match was marred by a few refereeing decisions, however. The decision to not send Kimpembe off was met by criticism from Manchester United fans, but they received a huge setback when Paul Pogba was harshly sent off for a soft foul on Dani Alves towards the closing stages of the game.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the game:
I fully accept we’ve been nowhere near good enough tonight but this ref has been a complete and utter joke. Pogba makes two fouls and gets two yellows. Kimpembe, who scored, has made FOUR bad fouls and still remains on the pitch. Disgraceful refereeing performance.

Di Maria was rightly booed all game but shame on the people who threw stuff at him in both halves. No need for it.

Might play in a farmers league but they outclassed us in every department. Long way to go my friends but still firmly behind Ole. Give him the job, get rid of the shitters who should have gone 3 years ago, rebuild with someone who gets the club and the way we want to play.

Love Solskjaer but difference between a proper coach and a naive one like him showing here. Ole has no experience at this level. Found out big time. No plan B. If we don’t score early, we struggle. Same vs Burnley. Psg just had to avoid conceding early and they did.

Also, where is this Pogba guy? A half fit Verratti has swallowed him, this isn’t Fulham and Brighton now my guy

All credit to PSG, just not our night, a bit to go until we can compete properly in Europe.
Before Ole came in we never even thought of competing for a top 4 place with that 11 point gap and we’re there now, that’s the target lads, a lot of other things to be happy about Reds.

This referee will pay for his sins on judgement day

We were well beaten but this is the most useless referee I’ve ever seen.

This referee is on cocaine or some type of drug. One of the most disgusting performances I’ve seen, this tie is over. Bloody hell he’s shocking 🤢
