Sporting Lisbon coach Paulo Bento insists there'll be no sympathy afforded to old boys Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani when they face Manchester United in the Champions League this season.

Sporting and United have been grouped together, along with Roma and Dynamo Kiev, and Bento said: "They are two players who we admire and who have a sentimental link with Sporting.

"But they left us to join another team and therefore we must show them that we are capable of producing a better team here than what can be found in Manchester"
