Sir Alex Ferguson visited the hotel PSG are staying ahead of their Champions League semi-final second leg this evening.

The Ligue One side are in Manchester ahead of the big game at the Etihad Stadium and have taken temporary residence at the Lowry Hotel upon arrival into the city.

The Scot was pictured walking past the PSG team bus and entering the hotel lobby, and later snapped leaving with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

According to Richard Fay from the Manchester Evening News, the 79-year-old was at the hotel for roughly 1 hour and 20 minutes.

The nature of Ferguson's visit has not yet been officially confirmed, though the 13-time Premier League winner does have a good relationship with PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino.
