Dortmund won the game 3-1, but the injury to Subotic, who last week put pen to paper on a new contract until 2016, took the gloss off the victory.

"It's not a very pleasant situation for us, but with (Felipe) Santana, we do have somebody who can replace him," the club's general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke said on sport1.de.

Marco Reus was on target for Jurgen Klopp's side in the 3-1 win over Spanish third-division opponents.

"Overall, I'm satisfied," said Klopp. "After the hard training sessions, it was obvious we would not be so sharp."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
