‘Wolfsburg deserved to beat Manchester United’ – Andre Schurrle
Wolfsburg midfielder Andre Schurrle has insisted that his side deserved their 3-2 victory over Manchester United in the Champions League.
A double from defender Naldo helped the Germans to the victory that saw them top Group B and condemn the Red Devils to Europa League football.
“It’s a huge night. I think we fully deserved it if you have seen the whole game,” he told TV3.
“We started a little bit bad as I should have scored in the third minute. They scored, but you see the quality of our team. You see the quality in the two goals we scored then. I think we could have scored earlier. We conceded to go 2-2 and anything could happen.
“We saw that [PSV] Eindhoven were winning and if we conceded we were out. But Naldo scored the goal and we are very happy that we go through.”
Dutch champions PSV secured their place in the knockout phase with a 2-1 win against CSKA Moscow.
