Club Brugge fan group fire warning to Man Utd ahead of Europa League clash

Manchester United fans have been sent a warning ahead of their clash against Club Brugge.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side go into the match with a slight advantage thanks to Anthony Martial’s equaliser in last week’s meeting, but they will be relying on support from their fans to get over the line.

The Red Devils are unbeaten in six fixtures and have been boosted by the form of Bruno Fernandes, but a fan group is predicting a difficult evening for them.

Wallonia Bruges Army president Cyril Noel has promised that the away followers will make more noise than the home faithful despite their reduced numbers.

He told Walfoot : “A European away game is always special and magical.

“We’ve been spoiled these past couple of years. Signal Iduna Park and the Wanda Metropolitano last year. Santiago Bernabeu, Parc des Price and Old Trafford this time around.

“Hope is certainly there despite important players like [Ruud] Vormer, Dennis and [Eder Alvarez Balanta] Balanta missing.

“However, if we’re in Manchester, it’s because we believe in it.

“Also, let’s not forget we’re better away than at home this year in Europe.

“Our fans predict a 2-2 draw. Either way, we’ll be more or less 5000 Brugge fans at Old Trafford tonight.

“We’ll make more noise than them and push our team to the max.

“Everything is allowed at the Theatre of Dreams.”

Solskjaer had an odd excuse for the disappointing performance last week, saying: “It was a difficult game against a well-organised team in difficult conditions.

“I don't think it was one of the best games that anyone's seen. We were a bit sloppy, concentration-wise, and the conditions, with the pitch and ball, made it hard.

“You can ask any of the players, that ball does not help when you want to play football.

“It’s just different and difficult to play with, but it's the same for the two teams of course. It's light – you should get one and try it.”
