David Moyes Proves Drugs Are Bad As He Says Manchester United Can Win The Champions League

David Moyes Proves Drugs Are Bad As He Says Manchester United Can Win The Champions League

David Moyes is feeling brave after Manchester United overturned their 2-0 first-leg defeat to knock-out Olympiakos with a 3-0 win on Wednesday night.

According to the under-fire United boss, his side are capable of winning the Champions League.

Seriously.

Post-match, Moyes said his team were a match for anyone if they find their form.

He told the national press: “I suppose we will be underdogs in the draw, but I genuinely believe this club is capable of winning it.

“If we show our capabilities, which we haven’t done too often, we can be a match for any team.

“After Sunday’s performance [the 3-0 home defeat by Liverpool], we needed to bounce back and we did it in style with this victory.

“It was a really good result in Europe, we came from two goals behind. It means we have got ourselves another two games in the Champions League, something we will really look forward to.”

Moyes also explained his reasoning behind limiting Ryan Giggs to just 12 appearances this term.

He said: “I thought that he is 40 years old and I needed to look to the future, to give people opportunities to play.

“But I felt after the result [on Sunday] and tactically, I needed him to carry out a certain role which he knew and did perfectly as well.”

We probably know the answer – but we still have to ask:
