Moyes: United Can Win the Champions League

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester United coach David Moyes said his team is good enough to win this season’s UEFA Champions League after the Red Devils finished comfortably on top of Group A with 1-0 win against Shakhtar Donetsk in its final game of the group stage at Old Trafford on Tuesday. After the game, Moyes revealed that his team could be classified as one of the favorites, despite United’s woeful recent form in the Premier League, where it is currently ninth.

"I think we could be classed as one of the favorites," the former Everton coach said.  "We'll have to improve in order to progress. A club like Manchester United has to be trying to win the trophy." He added: "You have to get better as the tournament goes on. It's a tough competition, a hard one but we will take it one game at a time."

Phil Jones scored the only goal of a game that United began poorly. Ukrainian champion Shakhtar wasted several opportunities in the first half knowing that it needed a win to guarantee passage to the Round of 16. However, the eventual loss and Bayer Leverkusen’s 1-0 win at Real Sociedad meant that the German giant joins United in the second round, instead.
