Ashley Young: Manchester United must target UEFA Champions League glory

Ashley Young: Manchester United must target UEFA Champions League glory”

They made light work of a tricky trip to CSKA Moscow in their latest continental fixture, as Anthony Martial inspired them to a 4-1 victory, but Ferdinand believes more game-changing quality will be required if United are to go all the way and challenge the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Young, who tends to be deployed at left-back, could be in line to get a start when United travel to CSKA Moscow for their second Champions League group game on Wednesday.

"I think it's wise for United to be humble when it comes to the Champions League", said Ferdinand.

It proved to be a sensational night for Celtic as they bagged their first Champions League group stage away win in five years as goals from Leigh Griffiths, Patrick Roberts, and Scot Sinclair handed Brendan Rodgers' troops a fantastic 3-0 win in Belgium.

"They're different squads and it's a different animal altogether".

Nevertheless, Gundogan - back in contention after a cruciate knee ligament injury prematurely ended his debut campaign in England - and his team-mates know they are on the right track.

"It'll be a good thing if we can get a win, but it wouldn't be a bad thing getting a draw", the 32-year-old admitted.

"They've got to try to do that first and consolidate there, before you start looking at the Champions League and talking yourself up as one of the contenders".

'Realistically, I don't see United going as far as the semi-finals this season'.

Harry Kane has already scored five Champions League goals this season, making him the top goalscorer after two games - two of those came in a 3-1 win against 2013 finalists Borussia Dortmund while a ideal hat-trick against APOEL made it five.

Also the United boss won a trophy last season in Europe when he led his side to Europa League success, which secure their spot in the Champions League.
