Maguire says Man Utd excited about AC Milan draw

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire says the players are excited about facing AC Milan in the Europa League.

United have a tough-looking Europa League last-16 tie against Serie A giants AC Milan, meaning Zlatan Ibrahimovic will return to Old Trafford next month.

"It certainly does (feel like a Champions League tie)," Maguire told club media.

"AC Milan is a massive club, great tradition. Obviously, it's at the San Siro. It's an exciting tie to be involved in.

"But, like I say, we're not looking at that one at the minute - we've probably got three, four games to play before that one. It's a great tie and one we look forward to and we'll be ready for when it comes around."
