Manchester United manager David Moyes has admitted that the club do not have enough world class players to put them in the running to win the Champions League this season, Sky Sports reports.

The defending Premier League champions have already lost three of their opening six games this season under David Moyes with their latest setback coming this weekend against West Bromwich Albion.

The club were unsuccessful in their pursuit of a number of high profile targets this summer, with proposed moves for the likes of in Cesc Fabregas, Leighton Baines and, finally, Ander Herrera all coming to nothing, and his failure to attract new players has lead David Moyes to believe that they may not be strong enough to mount a serious challenge for the Champions League this season.

“To win the Champions League, you need five or six world-class players,” he told several national newspapers.

“Look at Bayern Munich, they have it. Look at Barcelona, who had it in the past and Real Madrid, who have maybe got it now. That’s the level you have to be at to win it. We’ve not got that yet but what we have got is experience.”

The Red Devils began their Champions League campaign with a 4-2 home win over Bayer Leverkusen a fortnight ago, and face a difficult assignment away to Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.
