Man Utd quality impresses Club Brugge boss Preud’homme

Club Brugge manager Michel Preud'homme admits he has been fascinated by Manchester United's performances so far this season.

Louis van Gaal's men are undefeated in the Premier League, having kept three clean sheets, as they take a 3-1 lead into the second leg of their Champions League play-off with Brugge.

Ahead of the Jan Breydel Stadium clash, Preud'homme revealed he was thoroughly impressed by the star quality van Gaal possesses in his team which will certainly make life difficult for Brugge even if the home side are able to place scoreboard pressure on their more fancied rivals.

"This United team can live with pressure," he said.

"They have it each day, each minute in each game. When you see this team playing, they play on their quality, against Tottenham, against Newcastle, against us. They keep doing the same.

"I don't think they'll have more pressure if we score, but it's important for our confidence if we score."
