Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has cited three reasons why Manchester United could reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Jose Mourinho has targeted the last 16 for United after an absence from Europe’s premier competition, but Saha believes United are strong enough to go further.
“I think Manchester United could surprise a lot of teams in Europe,” he told BetStars.
“They have a manager who knows how to get his teams to perform at that level and there is now a combination of strong players in midfield and strikers who can score goals.
“By December, we will start to see the strength of the team. I hope they reach the final, I can see them reaching the last four.”
United start their Champions League campaign against FC Basel on Tuesday night at Old Trafford.
