The United squad to challenge the best in Europe

Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed the Manchester United Champions League squad for the knockout stages of the competition and it contains no surprises. Clubs were required to submit a senior list of up to 25 players to UEFA on Tuesday. They were also allowed to name an unlimited number of players on a ‘B’ list which includes players born on or after 1 January 1989 who have given at least two years continued service to the club after their 15th birthday. As a result, both Rafael and Fabio for example, both make the list.
