Manchester United legend Sir Alex Ferguson was in Turin last night.

The Daily Mail says Ferguson is no stranger to European finals - and he has graced yet another with his presence as he attends the Europa League final between Sevilla and Benfica in Turin.

The former Manchester United manager has returned to the Italian city for the first time since his old club beat Juventus 3-0 in the Champions League 11 years ago.

It was also the scene of one of his most famous triumphs in 1999 when United came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 in the Champions League semi-final second leg and reach their first European Cup final in 31 years.

His trip to Turin comes on the same day that Ryan Giggs took part in showdown talks with new United manager Louis van Gaal at a Dutch hotel in Noordwijk.
