Bayer Leverkusen coach Sami Hyypia expects a tough test at Champions League opponents Manchester United.

The Liverpool legend returns to England for this week's Champions League opener at Manchester United.

Asked about the absence of Sir Alex Ferguson, he told the Daily Mail: "Yeah, it's strange. He was there so long and now he's not. But I guess we all get older, and now it's a new time there.

"I guess they have some problems there. But I think under Ferguson, United had slow starts to the season, too. David Moyes is experienced and I don't think he will be panicking at the moment.

"It's an interesting game. I don't think we need to scout Man United a lot for this game. They will play exactly the same way they played under Ferguson."
