Sir Alex Ferguson, Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt attend Man City game against Barcelona

by Sam Peoples

Sir Alex Ferguson was in the Etihad Stadium last night watching on as Barcelona beat Manchester City 2-1 to give themselves an advantage in their UEFA Champions League round of 16 tie.

Fergie also watched Chelsea’s game against Paris St Germain last week as part of his Champions League tour.

United’s ex-boss wasn’t the only red in attendance either as Ryan Giggs and Nicky Butt sat alongside each other in the stadium.

Both may have simply been there to watch the game seeing as it was just down the road at the Etihad or who knows, maybe Giggs was tasked by Louis van Gaal with scouting Lionel Messi? Wishful thinking but you never know…

Paul Scholes was also in attendance as part of ITV’s coverage on the night so there was plenty of United legends who would have enjoyed watching Messi and co. leave the Etihad with a win.
