Reason Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo are out of Manchester United’s Champions League squad

New Signings and Familiar Faces in Squad

Sofyan Amrabat, Mason Mount, Rasmus Hojlund, and Jadon Sancho have all been included in the squad, as anticipated. Notably, Jadon Sancho’s inclusion comes despite his public disagreement with Erik ten Hag regarding his training performance.

Surprising Inclusions: Evans, Reguilon, Maguire, and McTominay

The squad also features Jonny Evans and Sergio Reguilon, along with Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay. This is intriguing, considering the strong rumors linking Maguire and McTominay with moves away from Old Trafford during the summer.

Notable Absences: Garnacho and Mainoo

Alejandro Garnacho is notably absent from the squad, as is Kobbie Mainoo. This omission is due to the fact that Under-21 players can be registered on the B List, a list submitted before each Champions League match and dedicated to homegrown talent.

Role of Garnacho in Champions League Campaign

While not in the initial squad, Alejandro Garnacho is expected to play a significant role in United’s Champions League campaign. He has already made two Premier League starts this season and made a notable impact coming off the bench against Arsenal. His goal, although ruled out by VAR, showcased his potential.

Upcoming Challenges and Objectives

United’s Champions League journey begins with a challenging match against Bayern Munich in Group A. Following this, they face Copenhagen and Galatasaray. The team’s aim is to secure a spot in the knockout stages before their final group-stage encounter against Bayern Munich on December 12, which takes place at Old Trafford.
