Champions League Draw: Inter Milan v United

"It's going to be tough because Italian teams are technically always very good. They make it difficult for you to create chances and historically Italian defences have always been the best so they will be two interesting games."

Q&A: Inter test excites Giggs

hope that's an advantage for us. The San Siro is one of the great stadiums to play in and a great platform on which to perform at your best. Hopefully we'll do that.

You must have good recollections of the quarter-final tie against them in '99...
Yes they were two good games, although both were tight affairs. I remember Scholesy scoring late on at the San Siro to put us through after we'd beaten them 2-0 at Old Trafford.

What do you make of the rest of the draw?
There are some great ties and I think the last 16 is really strong this year - there will be some big teams going out at the knock-out stage. It's going to be a tough competition to win as it always is. No-one has managed to retain so that's got to be our aim this season.
