Manchester United fans react to Europa League draw

Premiership Picks

After finishing sixth in the Premier League last season, Manchester United knew they would be facing a campaign in European football’s second-tier competition.

The prospect of having to Google teams to find out who they are, the long and demanding away trips to far-off places, and the oh-so troublesome Thursday-Sunday night game combinations make it a real difficult competition to embrace.

And it’s fair to say that after the group stage draw on Friday afternoon, the Red Devils will know they are fully involved in the rigours of Europa League football.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will take on Kazakhstan’s FC Astana, Serbia’s Partizan Belgrade and the Netherlands’ AZ Alkmaar as they look to progress into the last 32 of the competition.

After hearing about who they will be facing, United fans took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the group stage draw.

Many supporters of the Manchester side felt the draw perfectly encapsulated what Europa League football means, and insisted the teams involved in their group just made the competition “even more boring”.

Some Red Devils fans however even suggested they would probably finish bottom of the group and get knocked out at the first stage.

Check out some of the reaction of United fans below:
