Manchester United super-fan Andy Tate provided a hilarious welcome to the Paris Saint-Germain team bus as the players arrived in the city.
PSG are in Manchester to try and overturn City's 2-1 lead in the Champions League semi-final second leg. And the team coach just happened to encounter Tate, who became famous for his impassioned rants about the state of his beloved Man United.
However this time it was Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, Angel Di Maria and co. who were on the receiving end of Tate's vocal prowess, as he bellowed his support before they took on United's rivals.
On seeing the PSG coach in front of him in traffic, the United fan began cackling with glee before yelling encouragement at the players, as they possibly sat metres away.
"This is f***ing brilliant, this," analysed Andy. "PSG! Come on Paris!
"Come on Mbappe! F*** 'em up!" he encouraged before whooping as the team bus pulled away, presumably with a newly energised Mbappe on board.

The Ligue 1 side had a famous visitor to the Lowry Hotel where they were staying before Tuesday evening's kick-off. Sir Alex Ferguson was pictured arriving and - as it's only the PSG squad staying at the hotel - it seems highly likely he was invited to talk to the players.
Mauricio Pochettino's side need a comeback in the style Fergie's Man United team made famous. The 2-1 deficit they have from the first leg, after goals from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez cancelled out Marquinhos's opener in Paris.
That means PSG need at least two goals at the Etihad to stand any chance of progressing to the final and with Pep Guardiola's side playing ominously good football.
The same fan base that say they don't care about City :joy: https://t.co/tJeNdhvCgq

But if PSG do pull it off, maybe the pep talk from Tate - erm, as well as the one from Fergie - will be all the players are talking about afterwards.
