Manchester United Champions League Squad For Knockout Phase Revealed

Manchester United Champions League Squad

The name of Marouane Fellaini has been omitted from the Manchester United Champions League squad for the knockout phase of the competition.

Fellaini, who joined Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng in a £10million deal last week, is the only squad member to have been excluded ahead of the Paris Saint-Germain ties.

United have kept Ethan Hamilton on the list, despite the Scot joining League One side Rochdale on loan last month, while James Garner and Mason Greenwood, both 17, are still included following their substitute roles in the final group game at Valencia in December.

Tahith Chong, who was an unused substitute in the home defeat to Juventus in October, has also been retained.

As of last week, Jose Mourinho was still listed as United's manager on their UEFA squad section but that has been belatedly changed to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer has spoken repeatedly about the potential of the emerging academy talents at United.

“We have quite a few talents in that youth team that you'd like to see and you probably will see at some point before next season,” Solskjaer said.

“Because that's what it's about now, for me to put the club and put the team in a good position when at the end of the season, how do we look like, what will we look like next season.”
