Kanchelskis fears for Man Utd against Shakhtar Donetsk

Former Manchester United star Andrei Kanchelskis believes his old club will struggle tonight against Champions League opponents Shakhtar Donetsk.

Kanchelskis, who now works as assistant manager at Russian Premier League side FC Volga Nizhny Novgorod, still keeps an eye on United.

"It is going to be very hard for Manchester United I am afraid," he told the Manchester Evening News.

"It will be a very, very difficult game because Shakhtar have a lot of very good players and with the crowd behind them they are very tough to play against at home.

"They have been improving greatly year after year and for the last 10 years they have won virtually every title in the Ukrainian League.

"It has been fantastic for the city and for the fans, they are loving it. They have built up a formidable home record and any side that goes there won't find it easy at all.

"Shakhtar have a number of Brazilian players in the team and it makes the side a very technical and very skilful one."
