Man Utd's Evra: I don't give damn about Arsenal!

Patrice Evra says he'd welcome Manchester United drawing Arsenal in the Champions League quarterfinals.

Evra told the Daily Express: "Why not get Arsenal? I don't give a damn.

"I have played every year against Arsenal. We drew 2-2 on their ground and we can't wait to play them again next month. We beat them 4-0 in the FA Cup, too.

"You have to say they struck a big blow in knocking out the holders, but, basically, Arsenal don't scare me.

"The only team I am looking at for the next round of the Champions League are Manchester United.

"It would be a mistake to say we'd rather have Fenerbahce than Barcelona, say. That's when you get hit.

"Look at Real Madrid when they played us at Monaco in the quarter-finals in 2004. They were so confident they booked their hotel for the semi-final - but they hadn't reckoned on us. You have to stay concentrated."
