Cape Town - Manchester United will miss the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 1995 but Sir Bobby Charlton is not predicting further doom and gloom.

The Express report that Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton believes the club will turn around it's fortunes shortly.

The "Theatre of Dreams" will not play it's usual part in European football this season after Manchester United slumped to a seventh place finish in the English Premiership last season.

With Louis van Gaal's reign at Manchester United having suffered a particularly poor start, many fans of the club now wondering whether or not the club can bounce back this season. 

An opening day defeat at home against Swansea along with two dull draws leave the Old Trafford club in 14th position on the English Premiership log but Charlton believes improvement is just around the corner.

"It seems strange that Manchester United aren’t involved in European football for a season," Charlton said at the Soccerex conference.

"It’s crazy but maybe it can make things easier for us.

"We’ve started with some new players, we’ve not been playing well but we will play well.

"I think that it’s going to be a great adventure of how we pull ourselves back round and get back to the way it used to be."

Manchester United face QPR on Sunday, September 14 and will look to secure a vital first win of their season.
