Hargreaves fails to make Euro cut

Injury-hit midfielder Owen Hargreaves has been left out of Manchester United's Champions League squad.

Hargreaves has made only a solitary substitute appearance in the last two years for Manchester United as he battles tendinitis.

The 29-year-old midfielder has been included in United's Premier League squad, but he failed to make the club's Champions League group stage roster.

New Portuguese signing Bebe also failed to make the Champions League squad.

Uefa rules allow clubs to name 25 players, but United's squad has only 24 players, making Bebe's omission surprising, given he cost the club over £7m in the summer.


Hargreaves underwent knee surgery in the US in 2008 in a bid to solve the long-term tendinitis problem.

The former Bayern Munich player, who joined Manchester United in 2007 in a £17m deal, played several reserve matches towards the end of last season and came on as a late substitute in United's 1-0 win over Sunderland in the penultimate game of the season on 2 May.

If United qualify from their Champions League knockout stages - the club's last Group C game is at home to Valencia on 7 December - they are then eligible to name a new squad of players.
