Why Foster Needs To Pick Himself Up…

The UEFA Champions League has returned in all of its glory of a long-anticipated wait. The battle of the European giants has begun, with a certain team from Manchester looking to retain their title. Match day one saw some big matches, with none more so than Manchester United who traveled to the Allianz Arena to face off against Bayern Munich. The away team showed their talents but ultimately, silly errors cost them the win. Bayern Munich emerged victorious in a 4-3 humdinger. Arsenal returned to the premier league with a convincing 4-0 win and Barcelona showed the world that you should not count them out.
