Man Utd striker Berbatov excited about AC Milan showdown

Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov admits he's excited about their Champions League clash at AC Milan tomorrow.

Berbatov star grew up idolising Milan's legendary Dutch striker Marco van Basten.

Berba said: "I've played against each big club in the world but never against Milan - I'm very excited.

"I was a fan because Van Basten was there. I was a big admirer, he is one of the greatest forwards ever."

Bulgarian international hitman Berbatov, 29, expects a classic encounter with Milan as two of the biggest names in the history of the Champions League come head-to-head.

He said: "It will be a great game. Some people say Milan are not in the best shape but I think that's deceiving. There's no favourite - it's 50-50.

"It's about who is the smartest, who can use the mistake of the other team and just score the winning goal - that's pretty much the difference."
