Ferguson takes pleasure in learning Man Utd's Europa opponents

Sir Alex Ferguson is relishing Manchester United's Europa League meeting with Dutch giants Ajax.

The reigning Champions League runners-up failed in their bid to progress to that competition's Round of 16 and will now meet the Amsterdam outfit in a two-legged Round of 32 Europa fixture which is a first for Ferguson .

"Ajax are a good team and I've never faced them in competitive European football. I'm looking forward to it," he told the club's official website.

Man Utd meet Ajax at Amsterdam Arena in the first leg on February 16 with the return leg at Old Trafford the week later.
