Man Utd boss Ferguson: Roma good draw for us

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson admits he's pleased to be facing Roma in the Champions League quarterfinals.

"I was quite pleased actually because we know a lot about Roma, and they know a lot about us of course," said Ferguson, whose side faced the Italians last year and in this season's group stages.

"I'm pleased in the respect it avoids a Great Britain clash because we see them every week, more or less, on a different level in the league.

"The intensity lands at the feet of Arsenal and Liverpool. Obviously we have got work to do against Roma and it is not going to be easy but it avoids that Great Britain clash."
