Demba Ba tore Manchester United to shreds in the Champions League last night in a performance that saw the Senegalese striker roll back the years.
The former NUFC star began by firing his side İstanbul Başakşehir to an early 1-0, beating the offside trap and finishing calmly following some shocking defending by the Red Devils.
He wasn’t done there, however, with him setting up the second via a brilliant dummy that bamboozled Man Utd’s defence before Edin Visca smashed home.
Watch his goal and match highlights below, which show Ba’s genius ‘assist’ at 2:45:
Anthony Martial clawed one back for the visitors before half-time, but that wasn’t enough as Ba’s heroics fired İstanbul Başakşehir to a 2-1 victory!
Ba left NUFC in 2013 for Chelsea, but a string of serious injuries – including a broken leg – have prevented him from reaching the heights of his time on Tyneside.
It’s great to see him succeeding at this stage in his career – especially against Manchester United!
