Bayern boss Guardiola: Taking on Man Utd 'is a real honour'

Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola admits it is an honour to play a team like Manchester United in the Champions League.

The German giants meet the Red Devils at Old Trafford in the quarter-final first leg tomorrow night and despite David Moyes' domestic shortcomings this term, Guardiola still feels it is a privilege to come up against such a club.

"To try to achieve the next round against a team like Manchester United is a real honour," said the former Barcelona boss.

"The Champions League is not the most important title - the domestic league is - but it is the most prestigious.

"Now we are eight teams in the quarter-finals and every trainer and every player wants to win it - but it is not easy."

Bayern meet United at the Theatre of Dreams on Tuesday night before hosting the reigning English champions at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday April 9.
