Manchester United star Facundo Pellistri has expressed his excitement for the upcoming UEFA Champions League match against Bayern Munich. The first leg of Group A will take place at the Fusval Arena Munich in Germany on the 21st of September. However, Manchester United is facing an unusual pre-match situation as several key players, including Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Mason Mount, and Sofien Amrabat, are likely to be unavailable due to injuries. Additionally, Jadon Sancho and Anthony are expected to miss the game due to off-field issues, further exacerbating the team’s offensive struggles.
Sancho’s fractious relationship with Manchester United manager Eric ten Haag has resulted in his exclusion from the team. Coach Ten Haag cited Sancho’s lackluster performance during training as the reason for the ban, but Sancho contradicted this claim on social media, asserting that he had trained well. The rift between Sancho and Ten Haag remains unresolved, and there have been reports linking Sancho with a potential move to his former club, Dortmund.
Anthony’s participation in the match is also uncertain. He has been accused of assaulting three women, including his ex-girlfriend. Manchester United released a statement indicating that Anthony has agreed not to play until the charges are resolved. While Anthony maintains his innocence, he will remain sidelined until the case concludes.
With both Sancho and Anthony unavailable, Manchester United will heavily rely on the young winger Facundo Pellistri. Pellistri, who joined the club in the 2020/21 season, has shown promise during his loan spell at Deporivo Alaves in Spain. Although his performances for Manchester United last season were not outstanding, the club recognizes his potential and continues to provide him opportunities to prove himself. Local media speculate that Pellistri will feature in the upcoming match against Bayern Munich.
Speaking about the Champions League, Pellistri described it as one of the best tournaments in the world and expressed his belief that Manchester United deserves to be in the competition. He reminisced about Barcelona’s exceptional performance in the Europa League last season and expressed his eagerness for Manchester United to have a similar experience in the Champions League. Pellistri emphasized the team’s readiness to face any challenge in the tournament.
In conclusion, Manchester United’s preparations for the Champions League match against Bayern Munich have been hindered by injuries and off-field issues. However, young winger Facundo Pellistri remains optimistic and committed to giving his all in the upcoming game. The club and fans eagerly await an exciting and competitive match.

[스포탈코리아] Reporter Joo Dae-eun = Manchester United star Facundo Pellistri expressed his expectations for the upcoming UEFA Champions League.
Manchester United will face Bayern Munich in the first leg of Group A of the 2023/24 UEFA Champions League (UCL) at Fusval Arena Munich, located in Bayern Munich, Germany, on the 21st (Korea time).
Manchester United’s pre-match situation is unusual. There are not enough players to play. There is a high possibility that Manchester United’s key players, including Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, Mason Mount, and Sofien Amrabat, will not be able to play due to injury. In addition, Jadon Sancho and Anthony are expected to miss out due to problems off the pitch. In particular, the gap on the offensive side is severe.
Sancho is currently clashing with Manchester United manager Eric ten Haag. Coach Ten Haag said, “Sancho’s training performance was not good. So he was banned from the game,” he said first. Sancho immediately refuted through his social networking service (SNS) account, “Don’t believe what you read,” and “I trained well.”
Sancho has been excluded from the roster, let alone playing, after a clash with coach Ten Haag. There were also reports that manager Ten Haag and Sancho had spoken about the issue, but were unable to resolve it. There was also information that Sancho’s former team, Dortmund (Germany), were targeting him in the winter transfer market.
It is difficult for Anthony to participate as well. Anthony has been accused of assaulting three women, including his ex-girlfriend. On the 10th (Korea time), Manchester United announced on its official website, ‘Players who have not played an A game will train from the following Monday. “Anthony has agreed not to return to action until further notice regarding the charges,” the statement said.
‘The club opposes all acts of violence and abuse. ‘We recognize the importance of protecting everyone involved in this situation.’ Although Anthony maintains his innocence at the moment, he will not be able to compete until the case is over.
Manchester United’s two winged attackers suddenly disappeared. Manchester United must rely on wingers born in 2001. This is Facundo Pellistri. He grew up in CA Peñarol (Urguay) and made his senior debut. He was recognized for his potential by scoring 2 goals and 4 assists in 37 games during the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
Manchester United signed him in the 2020/21 season transfer window. Manchester United decided that Pellistri needed experience and transferred him on loan to Deporivo Alaves (Spain) from the 2020/21 season to the 2021/22 season.
Last season, he played as a joker or rotation member at Manchester United. After 13 games, he scored no points and provided only 1 assist. It wasn’t a great performance, but he’s a player with potential, so Manchester United keep giving him chances. The local media predict that Pellistri will play in the next match against Bayern Munich.
Pellistri spoke about his feelings ahead of the Champions League through the club. He said, “The Champions League is one of the best tournaments in the world. “Manchester United deserve to be in this competition and they have to give it their all.”
He continued, “Barcelona’s game in the Europa League last season was truly incredible. We are looking forward to a similar game in the Champions League. “We are ready to face any team,” he said.
