11:40 Right, that's it from me on the live blog. Hope you enjoyed our coverage. Look out for more reaction to the draw on throughout the day. And let's give David Beckham and Milan a pasting in 2010. Ciao for now!

11:38 Man_utd_forever says on Talking Reds: "Milan is a very tough draw, but I am happy because we lost against them in 2007 and I want revenge."  While Solomon Onilado is more confident: "We're gonna wipe the floor with them! Come on Reds!"

11:33 Don't forget, we're away in the first leg and home in the second. That's probably a slight advantage, but I think it all depends on what happens in the first game. We'll bring you the official dates of the ties soon on, plus we'll get reaction from Sir Alex Ferguson.

11:31 Teddy Sheringham reckons David Beckham will "have a nice Christmas break and he'll be making sure he is fit and ready to play against United". Teddy reckons it'll be weird to see Becks in a different shirt playing at Old Trafford. The hype has already started!

11:29 United's director of communications Phil Townsend echoes that sentiment from Nyon. He says "we owe them one" and that this kind of draw is "exactly what the Champions League is all about". He also thinks David Beckham will get a fantastic reception at OT upon his return with AC Milan. "He's a popular figure and many returning players get a great reception. He was a great servant to the club so I am sure he will get a warm reception."
