Sir Alex Ferguson, Eric Cantona and co-owner Avram Glazer were among those to head to the dressing room to celebrate with the United players, who were heard chanting Solskjaer's name after surely sealing the permanent manager's position.

The Red Devils are now just two rounds away from reaching the final, and The Sun reports that, should they win June's final in Madrid, ex-boss Mourinho will be in line for a medal.

However, UEFA head of referees Roberto Rosetti explained to The Times in January that the introduction of VAR to the Champions League this season would see players penalised for any unnatural movement of an arm that strikes a ball. We have a great relationship and we talk nearly every day.

"That's just the media", Solskjaer said of the constant speculation.

"He's a young guy, but he's a young guy already with huge experience", Mourinho said.

"I felt we were capable of pulling something off and even earlier today I said to Lee Grant that we were going to win, I could feel it".

PSG coach Thomas Tuchel refused to criticize Neymar for his outburst.

Two first-half Romelu Lukaku goals - either side of a Juan Bernat equaliser for PSG - were followed by Marcus Rashford coolly converting a high pressure (and slightly controversial) penalty in stoppage time.

The injured Brazil worldwide was powerless to stop his teammates from throwing away a two-goal, first-leg lead to a pair of Romelu Lukaku goals and a controversial Marcus Rashford spot kick for a Presnel Kimpembe handball - despite Juan Bernat scoring and hitting a post.

The man, held on suspicion of "attempted murder", was detained on Wednesday night, the source said on condition of anonymity.

"I think it will be a big help for everyone".

The German said the manner of the defeat, after his club had dominated much of the game, was "perhaps impossible to analyze".

"This is a disgrace!" he wrote. Neymar posted. "They put four guys that do not understand football to watch it in slow motion".

VAR was used for that decision, but referee Cuneyt Cakir did not check the pitch-side monitor five minutes later, when Patrik Schick felt he had been tripped in the Porto box.

This is their third consecutive exit in the Round of 16.

"If it were a league game you would wipe your mouth and go on, but today it's frightful and cruel", Tuchel said. "We did not deserve to go out over 180 minutes".
