Owen Hargreaves has been included in Manchester United’s Champions League squad but there is disappointment for Zoran Tosic, who misses out on the bloated 35-man squad.
Hargreaves, who is set to return to training on September 23 after undergoing operations on both knees to cure a career-threatening tendinitis problem, may be able to compete in the latter matches of the first group stage.
United are allowed to register up to 25 players for the Champions League and an additional 10 young players players, including Anderson and Jonny Evans. UEFA rules permit any player born on or after 1 January 1988 who has been eligible to play for the club for any uninterrupted period of two years since his 15th birthday to be registered outside of the 25-man squad limit.
There is also room in the squad for new signing Gabriel Obertan, who has been picked ahead of the Serbian Tosic.
