Cape Town - Gareth Bale believes Manchester United are looking good ahead of the new season, despite losing the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid.

Los Merengues edged out Jose Mourinho's charges 2-1 on Tuesday, but Bale believes the Red Devils have the potential to enjoy a highly successful campaign.

"I think it [the fear factor] is getting there," Bale told reporters when asked about United, as quoted by Four Four Two.

"Obviously I think by bringing Mourinho in, it's kind of boosted the club, by winning a few trophies last year, it did them great, and I think they're getting back to where they belong.

"He's a great manager, he's done everything in football, he knows what he's doing and I'm sure he's building a great team for what he hopes to achieve there.

"United did very well. They gave us a difficult game and I'm sure they'll do fantastic this season. I see no reason why they can't [be a force in the Champions League]."
