Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has vowed there will be no repeat of last season's European disappointment.
Despite being drawn in what was generally accepted to be one of the easier Champions League groups, the Red Devils failed to make it out, losing to Swiss outfit Basle in their final game when a draw would have been enough to progress.
"That definitely won't happen next season - there is no chance of that," Ferguson said. "Over the last few years we have used the group stage as an opportunity to play the youngsters. But last season we changed the team too much and it backfired."
