Speaking to Gambling.com, Louis Saha said: “In the Champions League knockout stages you won’t face any easy teams. You have to be very strong over both legs. You also have to accept that you won’t always have the ball.
“You might have to win a scrappy game here or there too, and that’s going to be the challenge here. With the type of players Manchester United have, yes I think they can win the Champions League. But they need to find the right form.
“In cup ties, you have to show up and be good on the day, and the bigger the side you face, the stronger you have to be mentally. If you can do that, anything is possible. When you don’t have the right spirit or attitude, you are in trouble.”
“But you can find all that with a change of management. We saw Chelsea do it last season when they brought in a new manager and won the Champions League. It happens, and when things click, big things are possible.”
Man United have been drawn against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League Round of 16 after being initially paired up with Paris Saint-Germain.
The Red Devils will travel to the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid on February 23 while the return leg at Old Trafford will take place on March 15.
