United manager David Moyes said that United lacked the world-class players needed to compete on the biggest stage.
“I said to win the Champions League you need to have a certain amount of world-class players,” Moyes said, via ESPN FC. “That is something which we will try and do. Of course we will try and win the Champions League. It is part of the job at Manchester United and I will do everything possible to try and make that happen.”
That is set to change with ESPN FC reporting that “Moyes is to be given transfer funds in the region of £50 million” to spend on transfers.
Despite this being a road game, United fans are expecting to get at least a point out of this match. If he fails, that seat could get hotter.
