Sir Alex Ferguson admits Manchester United face a stiff test of their ability in the cauldron of Celtic Park in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Ferguson said to the news media:
“Celtic Park is one of the best atmospheres to experience and their players can be inspired by it. If the game is going Celtic’s way, you have your work cut out to stem the tide of emotion and enthusiasm it generates. Celtic’s record at home is one of the best in Europe, so we accept we are in for a tough game on Tuesday.”
United have a huge Premiership game with Chelsea on Sunday, but Ferguson is wary of making too many changes after losing 1-0 to FC Copenhagen last time around.
He added: “I have not made my mind up about who should be left out. We took a risk in Copenhagen, so we are well aware of the dangers of taking too many chances. There is a temptation to play my strongest side because we still have another five days before the Chelsea game.”
