Inter Milan midfielder Dejan Stankovic has dismissed the challenge of facing Manchester United in their Champions League tie.

"I am not worried about Manchester United," Stankovic maintained in Il Giornale. "I was scared of facing Liverpool.

"Liverpool are a side of the highest level and they have something extra in Steven Gerrard.

"When you play against Liverpool you see how Gerrard drags the team forward. He is a great leader.

"We are amongst the favourites for the Champions League but it's a long season and everyone is talking about Barcelona."
