Ajax vs Manchester United Europa League 2011-2012
UEFA Europa League:
Ajax vs Manchester United
DATE: 16 February 2012 – TIME: 18:05 BST
VENUE:Amsterdam ArenA — Amsterdam
So Europa League will have some huge viewership increase this year due to the fact that Manchester United are playing in the competition for the first time ever. Manchester United remarkably failed to qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League and that is why they were relegated to Europ’s second tier competition but this can be a blessing in disguise as Ferguson have a great chance to add to his impressive 25 years in charge of United.
Ajax on the other hand are no longer the force they use to be in European Football and that is a shame, they have won the Europe’s Premier Competition three time and now they are shadow of a club they use to be, but with Johan Cryuff back in the Ajax system he is devoting his time to make them like Barcelona so time will tell whether we can see new Begkamps, Van Bastens, Van Der Sar’s and Edgir Davids.
Manchester United are coming into this match on the back of 5 very difficult matches where they managed to defeat Liverpool and Arsenal in the league, while held at Chelsea by 3-3, defeating Stoke 2-0 and were knocked out by Liverpool in the FA Cup, but this is the competition Ferguson will really take seriously now.
