Sir Bobby Charlton: It's strange United is not involved in European football


Sir Bobby Charlton believes not making the Europa League could be a blessing in disguise for Manchester United.

The Red Devils ended last season in a disappointing seventh place, one short of the Europa League qualification slots.

But the former Manchester United star believes this can help the players focus entirely on the English Premier League.

"It seems strange that Manchester United is not involved in European football for a season," Sir Bobby Charlton told reporters during a conference for football’s global leaders.

"It's crazy but maybe it can make things easier for us.

"We have started with some new players, we have not been playing well but we will play well.

"I think that it's going to be a great adventure of how we pull ourselves back around and get back to the way it used to be."
