Man Utd legend Charlton: Barcelona victory my proudest night

Sir Bobby Charlton says Manchester United's Champions League victory over Barcelona was one of his proudest moments.

The club's record appearance holder and 1968 European Cup winner admitted: "It's my proudest night watching the club.

"I have never felt so tense throughout a match. You could feel the tension and the crowd just picked the team up and carried them over the line.

"After losing to Chelsea in the league last week and having to face one of the world's great teams with some players injured it looked like it could be a bridge too far.

"But the response was sensational."
