Michael Carrick: Man United have a chance of beating Bayern

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick believes the Red Devils still have a chance of progressing

Michael Carrick believes Manchester United can be “really positive” in their approach to the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final at Bayern Munich.

The Red Devils secured a valiant 1-1 draw against the reigning champions at Old Trafford on Tuesday after Nemanja Vidic’s opener was cancelled out by Bastian Schweinsteiger.

We still have a chance, we have to believe so we can go over there and be really positive

Despite the Bundesliga champions scoring a vital away goal, United midfielder Carrick feels David Moyes’s side have a good chance of progressing to the last four.

“It would have been nicer if it was 1-0, it’s obviously not ideal but it’s not too bad. We are still in the tie and we have a chance going over there,” Carrick told United’s website.

“It was a bit frustrating going in front and then conceding a bit of a soft goal, but overall I think it was a pretty good performance.

“They are a good team and had the ball for long spells, but I thought we defended well as a team and on the counter-attack at times we looked dangerous.

“We knew it was going to be a tough night, it was never going to be easy so to get the draw is probably a fair result.

“We are not getting carried away, we know the task ahead will be tough. We are going to have to be right at our best to get the right result over there. We still have a chance, we have to believe so we can go over there and be really positive.”
