Aalborg's Beauchamp ready for Man Utd

Aalborg defender Michael Beauchamp has flown his parents to Denmark for their game with Manchester United.

Aalborg defender Michael Beauchamp has flown his parents to Denmark for their game with Manchester United.

"This is huge, awaiting a clash with Manchester United," the Australian said. "They are big favourites and strictly speaking our chances of winning are minimal.

"Instead we're viewing this match primarily as a great experience."

Beauchamp is also relieved to be available for the match after being sent off in his side's opener against Celtic in what was a case of mistaken identity.

UEFA later rescinded his red card - with Michael Jakobsen identified as the man who had committed a foul on Georgios Samaras - and Beauchamp can now focus on a clash which has clearly whetted the appetite of his family Down Under.

"Luckily everything has been put to rights," he said of the incident. "Apart from the referee, everyone could see it wasn't me but Michael Jakobsen who made the challenge.

"Thankfully AaB appealed and now I'm available for a dream match which my parents are flying over from Australia for."
