OMG, MU vs AC Milan in Champions League 1st Knockout Round? O_O

whew, as fan of both team I don’t know which team should I cheer really. But if it’s come to this I’ll cheer for Manchester United since they have Sir Alex Ferguson as their manager 😀

Well anyways here are the opinions of each team’s manager about this match:

Leonardo excited
“Just like Milan, Manchester United have an important European tradition,” he said. “We share the same objectives and it will be a well-balanced fixture, we both have the same chance of going through. It’s too early to make a prediction. Milan and Manchester United are two teams that have Europe in their blood, and if we look back to the past games between these two clubs we can see how emotional and fascinating they have been.”

‘Fantastic setting’
Sir Alex Ferguson has managed United to three finals in this competition and overcome Italian opposition on the way each time, Milan the notable exception to their fine record against Serie A sides in knockout games in recent seasons. “We’ve come up against AC Milan many times so it’ll be a fantastic setting for two great clubs and we’re very much looking forward to it,” the manager said.
