Western Sydney defender Beauchamp keen on van Persie challenge

Michael Beauchamp cannot wait to take on one of the world's best strikers this weekend.

The Western Sydney Wanderers centre-half is part of the A-League All-Stars team which meets English Premier League champions Manchester United in Sydney on Saturday night and admits he is excited about coming up against Dutch ace Robin van Persie.

"I'm not going to go about business any different than if I was playing a 16-year-old," Beauchamp said.

"I've still got to defend the same way and go about the positioning [the same way].

"Obviously he is a quality striker and played at the highest level for a long time now, but these are the challenges that you want to go up against week-in, week-out.

"I'm looking forward to it."
