On Sunday afternoon BT Sport attempted to compete with Sky Sports – who broadcast the League One playoff final – by showing the Manchester United vs Bayern Munich legends game to celebrate 20 years since United won the treble.
United strolled out 5-0 winners in front of more than 60, 000 at Old Trafford.
Peter Dury was commentating and, on the sidelines, BT chose Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford to offer their opinions on this legendary team.

Lingard enjoyed himself as he got to watch Jaap Stam, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes, David Beckham and their current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tear Bayern apart.
Solskjaer, opened the scoring within the first five minutes and United never looked back. Further goals from Butt, Louis Saha, Dwight Yorke, and Beckham sealed the win.
It was a pleasure for both of the local boys to cover this match, but for fans it was probably a sad reminder of what they used to have and what they are now left with.
Lingard and Rashford need to take some inspiration from the legends who were on display and improve the standard of their performances next season.
