MANCHESTER UNITED’s
squad is not strong enough to
win the Champions League
this season
That is according to eighttime
Olympic Gold medalist
and huge Manchester United
fan Usain Bolt.
United are back in the
Champions League after a year
away following their Europa
League final victory over Ajax
in May.
Manager Jose Mourinho has
strengthened his squad by the
additions of Romelu Lukaku,
Nemanja Matic and Victor
Lindelof, as well as the return
of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, in a near
£150million spending spree.
However, Bolt reckons more
potency up front and solidarity
at the back is needed when the
transfer window reopens in
January.
“The Champions League is
going to be hard, you know
what I mean,” Usain Bolt told
ESPN.
“I think we’re missing a few
vital (players), I think we need
maybe one more striker, maybe
a stronger defence and then we
will be fine. One striker, one
defender.”
Bolt is excited by Zlatan
Ibrahimovic coming back
though but expects the Swede
to take time to regain fitness.
Ibrahimovic has been out
since April due to a knee injury
he picked up in the Europa
League quarter-final win over
Anderlecht.
“For sure Zlatan will be good
but because he’s starting so
late, because I think they said
he’s not going to start playing
until January, he’s not going to
be in shape,” Bolt added.
“It takes time to get into
playing football, so it’s going
to be tricky.
“The teams looks good but
anything is possible, right?”
Manchester United have won
their opening three games of
the Premier League season and
sit top of the table
