Man Utd defender Jones: Too soon to consider Champions League knockout opponent

Manchester United defender Phil Jones says its too soon to consider who they'll face in the Champions League knockouts.

By Wednesday night, United will know who they can get in the knock-out round draw in Nyon on December 20.

And already it appears the Red Devils are going to be facing a tough opponent, with Real Madrid, AC Milan, Juventus and Paris St Germain presently amongst the runners-up.

Not that Jones sees any point in looking too far ahead.

"There are no bad teams in the Champions League," said the former Blackburn man.

"It doesn't matter who you get it's always going to be a very difficult game, home and away.

"We are just looking forward to being in the knock-out stages and are relishing the challenge."
