United hoping for win against little-known Otelul

BY foxsports • October 17, 2011

Manchester United will go looking for its first win in this season's Champions League against Otelul Galati, a side manager Alex Ferguson admitted he had ''never heard of'' before.

Even in Romania, not much more is known about the ''Steelworkers'' - other than that Otelul's captain volunteered for a 30 percent pay cut last year.

Otelul was the surprise winner of the Romanian championship last season - its first title - and on Tuesday night the team will meet United at Bucharest's National Arena in the biggest match in its 47-year history.

With United in desperate need of a win to kickstart its campaign after two straight draws in Group C, Wayne Rooney, Nani and Javier Hernandez could all return to the starting XI.
