Ashley Young: Manchester United are ‘confident’ following Champions League draw

by Sid Choudhary

Manchester United midfielder Ashley Young is looking forward to being back in the Champions League following the draw for the competition’s group stage.

Man United were drawn in Group B alongside PSV Eindhoven, CSKA Moscow and Wolfsburg and Young is positive about the Reds chances.

After a year-long absence from Europe’s biggest club competition, United got past Club Brugge to secure their spot in the group stage. Louis Van Gaal‘s men will be hoping to progress from what is seen as a relatively straightforward group.

Speaking to Manutd.com, Young was upbeat about how far the team can get in the competition.

“We’re definitely confident. We know the games will be tough but we’re confident we can go away from home and get points and then win our games at Old Trafford. That should see us through our group and then we take it from there,” he said.

The 30-year-old emphasised just how much United wanted to get back into the Champions League.

Young said: ”We always set targets for the season and being back in the Champions League was one of them.

“We got past Brugge to achieve that and now we’re aiming to bring trophies back to United. That’s what everybody at this club wants. We want trophies and, fingers crossed, by the end of the season, we’ll have done that.”

United should be capable of getting past the group stages but beyond that is anybody’s guess. Their progress may depend on the form of players such as Memphis Depay, who put in a fantastic performance in the first leg against Brugge.
