The former Red Devils striker was seething after witnessing the Brazilian get sent-off as his old side lost 3-1 reception to Paris Saint-Germain within the Champions League.

Fred escaped a red card within the half when thrusting his head within the direction of visiting midfielder Leandro Paredes.
He was only booked for that incident, but he picked up a second yellow for a challenge on Ander Herrera within the last half .

Owen had zero sympathy for Fred, and he took aim at the South American and Solskjaer for failing to sub him off before his second caution.
He told BT Sport: “Mistakes all round really.
“It was a red card. There wasn’t much [in the headbutt] but come on, you are a grown man.
“You do not have to try to to these petulant little things to place your team in danger .
“If i used to be a manager and one among my players did this, just pure petulance, then he wouldn’t play on behalf of me again.
“It’s pathetic really.”
