Manchester United reveal Champions League squad

September 2, 2009


Man Utd have revealed their Champions League squad for the coming campaign with a few interesting picks and omissions

Owen Hargreaves has been included despite suffering from 12 months of injury. He is expected to return to the first team in October.

 The biggest omission is Zoran Tosic, who does not feature at all. Rumours are abound that the player is to be loaned out for the rest of the season. As a result, Gabby Obertan has been included in the 25, in spite of not making his first team debut as yet. There are also place for Johnny Evans’ brother Corry who has come through the club’s academy with rave reviews in  midfield.

25-man squad:

1.Van der Sar, 2.Neville, 3.Evra, 4.Hargreaves, 5.Ferdinand, 6.Brown, 7.Owen, 9.Berbatov, 10.Rooney, 11.Giggs, 12.Foster, 13.Park, 15.Vidic, 16.Carrick, 17.Nani, 18.Scholes, 20.Fabio, 21.Rafael, 22.O’Shea, 24.Fletcher, 25.Valencia, 26.Obertan, 27.Macheda, 28.Gibson, 29.Kuszczak.

Additional players registered: **

 8.Anderson, 19.Welbeck, 23.J.Evans, 31.C.Evans, 33.Hewson, 36.Gray, 37.Cathcart, 38.Zieler, 39.Chester, 40.Amos.

**UEFA rules permit any player born on or after 1 January 1988 who has been eligible to play for the club for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday to be registered outside of the 25-man squad limit

    Wow, Ando not in the 25 man squad? His wee bust up with Sir Alex must have been truly epic.

    I really hope he gets his act together, I have so much hope for him.

    Is it really worth putting Owen Hargreaves aka ‘Sicknote’ on the list? He’ll play one game and break his face or something.

    Hope Hargo is fit to get involved as the midfield badly needs someone who can withstand pressure

    Ferguson is honestly making me sick with the treatment he is giving to Zoran Tosic. He is a regular in the Serbian national team, played pretty much all the pre- season matches and by all accounts is starring in the reserves and now can’t even make the extended squad!? Just another case of big clubs buying up young talented players and killing their careers.

      Petar i think it is because Tosic is due to go out on loan for the season. He played well in pre season but is way down the pecking order and needs more that reserve team football. I hope he makes it with us.

        Yeah but I don’t see why he needs to go out on loan, he is already 21 years old and has vast first team experience with his former club and international side. I’m telling you now I honestly think he is already better than Nani and probably even Valencia. I’ve heard rumors that Fergie doesn’t really like the player and didn’t want to even sign him but Partizan gave him the condition that if he wants Ljajic he needs to buy Tosic also. But come on how often do you see a player go out on loan and come back to play for the first team…hardly ever. I see this as just a prelude to him leaving next season to another team to find regular football.
