A Lot Has Happened Since Manchester United Won A Champions League Knockout Game

Manchester United's wait for a Champions League knockout win is still ongoing after the Red Devils were beaten 2-0 by PSG in the round of 16 first leg at Old Trafford.

Goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe inflicted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's first defeat since taking the United job on a caretaker basis.

But it means you have to go as far back as March 2014 for United's last knockout victory in the Champions League - a 3-0 win over Olympiakos in the round of 16 second leg - with a Robin van Persie hat-trick completely turning the tie on its head.

David Moyes was in charge on that occasion and incredibly he is the last United manager to taste victory in the latter stages of Europe's premier competition. Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho and now Solskjaer have all failed to do so.

In fact, some of the events that have happened since Moyeseh led United to a win are quite remarkable and a detailed list has been compiled by BT Sport.

For starters, Solskjaer was managing Cardiff at the time, left and went back to Molde for a second spell before being 'loaned' to his beloved United as interim boss until the end of the season.

Leicester City have been promoted to the top flight and then went on to win the Premier League in fairytale fashion against all the odds in the 2015/16 campaign.

Real Madrid have dominated the Champions League by winning the competition four times, while a slew of football's most decorated and gifted players have all called time on their careers.

Jose Mourinho has been sacked by both Chelsea and Manchester United and finally, Diego Costa left Atletico Madrid for Chelsea, won the league in his first season and then went back to the Spanish capital for another spell with Diego Simeone's side.
