United Takes Europa League Seriously

Ajax Amsterdam
Man United
Amsterdam Arena
Kick Off 17 February 2012, 2 am Malaysia Time

Now United flied to Amsterdam to face former Europe giant in less glamour cup. Never thought that United will be in this second tier cup. But United had to take it seriously to amend the heartbroken. And they had to face another Europe finest. Though Ajax not be regular in UEFA Championship League they are still the best.

It is the game between four time Europe Champion against three. Ajax is 30 times Dutch champion while United just recently hit 19. The similarity is both are well known for home grown player. Ajax storm the Europe with homegrown players that conquered the continents until the Bosman Ruling that hurt them so much.

So reluctant and heartbroken at first but their academy keep producing the Europe finest. The latest is Christian Eriksen  that will facing the club that admired him. So it will be interesting to see him fare in this game.

For this game De Gea will definitely start. Evra said to be rested so most possible the fullback would the Da Silva twins. Ferdinand and Evans as the central defenders.  Valencia, Carrick, Scholes and Nani in the midfield. The strikers again Welbeck and Rooney. Ji Sung Park maybe in for the left winger. Cleverley said to be fit but I’m doubt he will be in starting line up after along injury break.

It will be great and entertaining game. A clash of two teams with great football philosophy. It would be cracking game. United should return with a win.
