Moyes explains Champions League absence for Man Utd starlet Januzaj

Manchester United boss David Moyes has explained the Champions League absence of Adnan Januzaj. Moyes explained the decision to leave him out was tactical, as it enables the Reds to register the 18 year-old Belgian as an additional, available player from the third group game onwards.

Moyes said: "By 7 October, Adnan will have been at the club for the length of time that will allow him to go onto the 'B' list. It means he will become a youth player [for the Champions League].

"If we had put him onto the 'A' list now, then we would never have been able to class him as a youth-team player. So we needed to wait for two games to do that."
