Marcos Senna says Villarreal are really looking forward to a new meeting with Manchester United who they beat to win the Europa League, the club’s first major European trophy in May. Completing the group are Atalanta and Young Boys.
“Once again, we meet Manchester United. Curiously, we have met them five times in the past and drawn all of those games. We only managed to beat them on penalties.
As for Atalanta, from what I have seen of them, they are a strong attacking side who score a lot of goals. Young Boys complete a group which we are hope to enjoy while taking it seriously and obviously, aiming to get to the next round.
We could not be more excited or hopeful about being back in this competition for the first time in 10 years. The fans are excited too and we’ll be doing everything we can to ensure they are happy and come along to support the team in these games”.
