Sissoko Set For Euro Battle

13 February 2013 11:07
Moussa Sissoko was added to United's European squad earlier this month along with fellow new signings Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Massadio Haidara.

However, Yoan Gouffran is cup-tied, having played for Bordeaux in the competition, and in any case, the club could only make three additions, only one of which had previously featured in the Champions League, ruling out full-back Mathieu Debuchy, with Yanga-Mbiwa having been chosen ahead of him.

United have taken off:
