Man Utd ace Rooney fears AC Milan duo Seedorf, Ronaldinho

Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney admits his admiration for Clarence Seedorf ahead of their Champions League tie with AC Milan.

The 33-year-old Dutchman was a key component of the Milan sides that knocked United out of Europe in 2004-05 and 2006-07.

Rooney said: "Seedorf. He is probably the strongest player I have ever played against. I have rarely seen someone do what he does on the pitch. You can't keep him out.

"And then there is Pirlo and Beckham: Milan are a really great team. Playing at the San Siro is special."

Rooney also had praise for Ronaldinho.

"He is incredible. Ronie has a fantastic talent. He can resolve any game in any moment on free-kicks," Rooney concluded.
