Manchester United chief David Gill says they're happy with their Europa League draw against Ajax.

United will compete in the Europa League for the first time in February and, judging by the mood in the away end at Loftus Road on Sunday, the trip to the Dutch capital is already being eagerly anticipated.

"I'm looking forward to it," Gill told MUTV. "We were discussing who we could get and obviously Ajax was an opportunity.

"We've never played in their stadium in a competitive match. We played in a friendly pre-season tournament a few years ago, but never in a competitive game.

"Ajax are a good team with a great pedigree and it's not far to go, which is obviously pleasing.

"I'm sure it will kick off that competition in great style."
