“Some People Will Think I Am Stupid” – Luke Shaw on Champion’s League
Luke Shaw outlined Manchester United’s ambitious Champions League hopes and believes ‘some people will think I’m stupid’ for claiming that his team can win the European grand prize.
Shaw made the bold claim in an interview with the club’s official website, and said: “As a team, we believe we can win the Champions League. There’s no reason why we can’t think that.
“Some people will think I’m stupid for saying that, but we have that belief and confidence that we can win it. Not many people on the outside will think that but I’m sure everyone in this dressing room – the players, the staff and the management – all have that same belief that we can.
“Now we need to pick some momentum up, get results and keep playing well.”
The Red Devils have not progressed further than the quarter-finals of the tournament since reaching the final in 2011, and resume their European campaign against Atletico Madrid.
The first leg of their last-16 tie takes place in the Spanish capital on Wednesday, before Diego Simeone’s men head to Old Trafford for the return leg on March 15.
