David Moyes: Man United looking forward to Bayern Munich showdown
David Moyes insists that he is relishing Manchester United's Champions League showdown with Bayern Munich
David Moyes insists that Manchester United are relishing their Champions League quarter-final clash against Bayern Munich but accepts that the Red Devils have been handed a “really tough” draw.
Moyes’ men were pitted against the favourites and holders of Europe’s elite club competition in Friday’s draw, with Chelsea being paired with French champions Paris Saint-Germain.
It’s a really tough draw for us but one that I’m looking forward to
United battled back from two goals down against Olympiacos to seal a 3-2 aggregate win in the last 16 – and Moyes insists that he was simply delighted to see the Red Devils reach the quarter-finals.
“I was thrilled that we were in that draw and we’re in the quarter-finals of the Champions League,” Moyes said.
“When we were 2-0 down to Olympiacos a week or so ago, I don’t think a lot of people were putting us through to the quarter-final draw. So, in a lot of ways, it didn’t matter who I drew.
“But I’ve got to say we’ve drawn out the favourites and obviously the holders of the cup competition as well, so it’s a really tough draw for us but one that I’m looking forward to.”
