Manchester United will face German giants Bayer Leverkusen tomorrow in the Champions League. Ahead of the crucial European tie, Manchester United manager David Moyes says he is really excited to get the Champions League underway tomorrow.
Moyes said: “We’ve got a leading team from Germany and Spain to play, and have to go to Donetsk to play Shakhtar. It’s a tough group.”
“I’m always amazed at the atmosphere on big Champions League nights. I want to do everything I can to win it.”
The Scot answered questions on various topics including Ashley Young’s diving, Wayne Rooney, Shinji Kagawa’s fitness update, young Adnan Januzaj’s contract situation and utilizing the squad properly with games coming thick and fast.
The 18-year-old impressed everyone in Manchester United’s pre-season tour of Asia and produced a fine cameo performance against Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Moyes said today that the club is confident Januzaj will commit his future at Old Trafford, by signing a five-year-contract. When asked whether he feels confident the young Belgian will sign a new contract, the former Everton boss replied “yes”.
Moyes further explains his decision of not including the youngster on the Champions League A list. He said that if the player is included on the A list at any point, he’ll never be able to feature for the U19 Champions League side.
Further he gave an update on Shinji Kagawa’s health, saying the Japanese star is feeling bit better at the moment. He added: “He has a bit of flu. He did some work yesterday and a little bit today.”
