Moyes: We Can Win The Champions League

By on February 22, 2014

David Moyes has reminded his players that it’s not always the best team that wins the Champions League.

Moyes told reporters: “It isn’t always the best teams that get to the final in Europe. Liverpool in 2005 gives us hope, but in any cup competition you always have a chance.

“I knew it was going to be a hard competition before it started. Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid and PSG are all top clubs.”

“You see some of the games, where teams have hung on and hung on and somehow nicked a goal.”

£37million record signing Juan Mata is cup-tied for the Champions League, after previously appearing for Chelsea. Manchester United has been revitalised by a five-day training break in Dubai & beat Crystal Palace 2-0 on Saturday.

“It gave us the chance to be together,” he said. “We didn’t need loads of training, but it was probably the first time I’ve had a real chance to get together with the players.

“We trained every day, had some good weather and played golf. It gave me the chance to spend some time with the players.”
