David Moyes has claimed Manchester United lack the world-class players to win the Champions League.
• Okwonga: West Brom add further furrows to Moyes' brow
Moyes has overseen an underwhelming start to life at Old Trafford, losing three of the first six Premier League games, including a 4-1 derby loss to Manchester City and a surprise 2-1 defeat against West Brom at Old Trafford.
The former Everton manager also failed to land some of his high-profile transfer targets during the summer including Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas, Leighton Baines and Ander Herrera.
And he has now said that he is unsure if his current squad is able to compete on the same level as Europe’s elite sides.
“To win the Champions League, you need five or six world-class players,'' Moyes told several national newspapers in England.
“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.”
