It’s no secret that tennis maestro Roger Federer is a massive supporter of FC Basel. So when they pull off a win – that too over one of the finest clubs in the world – how could he not be ecstatic.

A late goal from defender Michael Lang helped FC Basel score the only goal of the match and stun English giants Manchester United in a Champions League group-stage match on Wednesday night.

Federer, who is currently gearing up for the new season, later took to his official Twitter handle to heap praise on the winning team.

“Words can’t possibly describe this incredible moment for this club, wow!!!! Congrats to the team,” the 36-year-old wrote to his 10.7 million followers.

Meanwhile, FC Basel are currently placed second in the group, only behind Manchester United. A win in their final fixture is likely to seem them through to the knockout stage of the tournament.
