Real Madrid coach Mourinho ready to battle "icon" Ferguson

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho is excited facing Sir Alex Ferguson in the Champions League.

Real have drawn Manchester United in the knockout round.

"We face a team coached by an icon amongst coaches. Ferguson is the only one who wants to have a chat while drinking a very, very, very expensive wine... so, the trip will be a little expensive for me because I’ll have to buy him a good wine. It will be exciting and we are motivated to beat a team with an opposing philosophy to Real Madrid," said Mourinho.
