Champions League Group H draw: Owen reacts, advises Manchester United

Former Manchester United midfielder, Owen Hargreaves, has urged the club to sign a “few players” before the transfer window closes next week.

Owen made the appeal while reacting to Man United’s UEFA Champions League group stage draw on Thursday.

Man United regained a place in Europe’s top-flight competition after finishing third in the Premier League last season.

The Red Devils were drawn in Group H with Paris Saint-Germain, RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir.

“I think they [Man United] can be quietly confident,” Owen said on BT Sport.

“PSG are the strongest team in the group H, but I think United are the second strongest team.

“RB Leipzig have a brilliant young manager who will relish playing against United. We know that they’re not firing on all cylinders, but hopefully, they get a few players in. It’s a big season for United and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“[The draw] is not ideal but hopefully they can get a few players in and finish first or second.”
