MANCHESTER UNITED legend Sir Alex Ferguson took his time measuring the Nou Camp pitch – 20 years on from his historic night at the same ground.
In 1999, United clinched a famous treble with a phenomenal comeback win over Bayern Munich to lift the Champions League trophy.
That night, Teddy Sheringham and current Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored to secure the incredible victory.
And this evening, Fergie, 77, was back at the scene of arguably his greatest achievement in football for his old team’s crunch Champions League tie.
Man Utd travelled to Spain trailing 1-0 in their quarter-final tie after their home defeat – with Ferguson desperate for another miracle.
United managed to overturn a 2-0 deficit to beat Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16.
WIDE HE DO THAT?
But Fergie is adamant there’s been a touch of gamesmanship in Barcelona ahead of the game – with club officials WIDENING the pitch.
The Scottish icon frantically paced across the famous Nou Camp surface in a bid to work out the width.
BT Sport host Des Kelly claimed Ferguson told him he thought it looked wider and was adamant there was foul play involved.
It could be Fergie believes Barcelona added width to the pitch in a bid to take advantage of United’s fragile full-backs.
