“The draw is not Ideal”— former Manchester United midfielder reacts to Man United’s UEFA Champions League draw

Former Manchester United player, Owen Hargreaves, has called on his ex-club to be ‘quietly confident’, following Thursday’s UEFA Champions League draws.

The Red Devils have been placed in Group H, and will be facing the likes of Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig, when the competition kicks off.

After the draws, fans were a bit anxious, as it seems to be one of the most difficult groups in the Champions League this season, but Hargreaves believes Olé Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have reason to be confident.

The pundit however, called on United to make a few additions to their side this summer, to make things easier for themselves.

He said: “I think they can be quietly confident. ‘PSG are the strongest team in the group but I think United are the second strongest team.

“RB Leipzig have a brilliant young manager who will relish playing against United.

“We know that they’re not firing on all cylinders but hopefully they get a few players in. It’s a big season for United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“[The draw] is not ideal but hopefully they can get a few players in and finish first or second.”

United returned to the Champions League, after finishing third in the Premier League last season, having been off the competition for more than a year.

The 2020/21 season is expected to begin later this month.
