Wolfsburg are enjoying their first ever Champions League adventure after shocking Germany by winning the Bundesliga with exciting, stylish attacking football. New coach Armin Veh, having taken over after Felix Magath departed, got them off to a slow start but their majestic attack looks the real deal again as they’re improving gradually.

Now they’re preparing for a visit to Old Trafford, with Veh insisting he won’t be losing any sleep over meeting last season’s runners-up, one of the most prestigious clubs of the competition.

‘Old Trafford is a special ground and Manchester United is a very special club,’ said Veh.

‘They have played over 150 games in this competition and we have only had a couple.

‘But we will not hide and I won’t be losing any sleep thinking about it.

‘It is impossible to say for certain whether the players will be inspired or afraid. But I do know we cannot afford to wait until Manchester United have scored four or five goals before we start to impose our own style on the match.’


Hopefully they will be afraid – we don’t want the likes of Misimovic, Grafite and Dzeko running riot at Old Trafford. They might not be household names but they are certainly excellent players… It should be a spectacular game!
