Man Utd confirm Europa League squad as Erik ten Hag omits Phil Jones and Brandon Williams after transfer spree
MANCHESTER UNITED boss Erik ten Hag has selected his 25-man squad for the upcoming Europa League campaign.
The Dutchman has picked a strong squad to compete in Uefa’s second tier competition, and he has a number of new faces to help bolster his chances of picking up silverware in his first season.
United backed Ten Hag in the summer transfer window to the tune of £216million.
Ajax ace Antony and five-time Champions League winner Casemiro were the Red Devils’ marquee signings.
However, with those new arrivals, old squad members have had to make way in the Europa League squad.
United veteran Phil Jones has missed out on the 25-man squad, as has young full-back Brandon Williams.
Jones, 30, has started two games in the last two years and has been largely unavailable through injury.
And Williams, 22, who spent last season on loan at Norwich, is yet to feature this term.
Instead, two young players have been selected.
Exciting talents Facundo Pellistri and Alejandro Garnacho have been chosen.
United kick-start their Europa League campaign, a competition they won under Jose Mourinho, against Real Sociedad on Thursday.

Ten Hag’s men are also joined in Group E by FC Sheriff, a Moldovan team who managed to beat Real Madrid 2-1 at the Bernabeu in last season’s Champions League group stages.
Cypriot side Omonia complete the group.
