Dortmund poke Bayern bear with Ole Solskjaer museum tribute

The mind games have been ramped up ahead of next weekend’s Champions League Final.

THERE ARE LOW blows and then there is this.

Borussia Dortmund have put a display of Ole Gunnar Solsjaer’s Manchester United jersey and a boot the striker wore in the Champions League victory over Bayern Munich in 1999.

Solksjaer’s winning goal, struck 90 seconds after Teddy Sheringham’s injury-time equaliser, left Bayern devastated after squandering a 1-0 lead and many chances to finish off Alex Ferguson’s men.

The late defeat is now ingrained in Bayern’s psyche and surfaced in last season’s Champions League defeat to Chelsea when Didier Drogba headed in a late equaliser to force the match into a penalty shoot-out that the Germans lost.

Did Glenn Whelan put a pig’s head in a team-mate’s locker?

Things that will make every Irish sports fan feel very, very old
