Mou Can't Wait To Clash With Fergie

Jose Mourinho was at Old Trafford to watch Manchester United pip Liverpool to three Premier League points on Sunday.

The Special One will be back at the Theatre of Dreams next month, when his floundering Real Madrid side take on United in the last-16 of this season’s Uefa Champions League.

It is a match that Mourinho says he is relishing, and is a romantic tie he says the football world cannot wait to see.

Mourinho’s only regret is that Real will not be clashing with United in the final of the Champions League instead.

"This is the match the world wants to see," Mourinho said in the British press over the weekend, looking forward to next month’s encounter.

"Real Madrid against Manchester United. Sir Alex against his friend Mourinho.

"The only shame is that it is not the final. We know we can beat them. We know they can beat us - but we will be ready.”

"There were groups where you knew who was going to be first and second after two or three games,” Mourinho added, referring to the manner in which Real were drawn with United.

"But our group included three of the best five teams in the competition - Borussia Dortmund, Manchester City and ourselves. Now we get the toughest opponent in the biggest tie of the last 16."

Who is your money on to reach the UCL quarter-finals: Mou's Los Blancos or Fergie's Red Devils?
