Sir Alex Ferguson was filmed excitedly waiting for the 31-year-old to return down the stairs after lifting the trophy which had sparked wild scenes of celebrations amongst the Portuguese fans.
Having spotted his former manager, the pair embraced and shared a few words as they evidently still enjoy a close bond despite the fact that they parted company in 2009.
