Champions League Draw
After Steven Naismith beat Dutch side Ajax by himself Manchester United got rewarded with a match against Real Madrid. Real Sociedad play Chelsea but for me the tie's of the round are Barcelona vs Man City and Dortmund against Bayern Munich.
Naismith grabbed 4 goals over 2 legs against Ajax
It is clear to see that Spain, England and Germany have the best sides in Europe at the moment. Bookies make Real Madrid the favourites to win at 4/1 with Barcelona and Bayern coming in at 6/1.
For Rodgers' United side you can get 12/1, which is good value because they are in good form at the moment.
Klinsmann: We Will End United's Title Hopes
Klinsmann bullish about hopes
Jurgen Klinnsmann took over from Rodgers when he moved to United and today said his side are the superior side and they will show it on Saturday.
We have been in amazing form all season and would dearly like to win the title. We are way better than this United side in which Brendan has made them even more mediocre than they already were. Luis Suarez and Danny Sturridge have been the best players in the Premier League in my view and we have Andre Marriner refereeing too so we are sure to win with Buttner we hope getting sent off.
Brendan Rodgers came back at Klinsmann though with a very harsh response.
Rodgers hits back
If Jurgen thinks that slagging us off can give them an advantage then he is wrong. He was a crap international manager and is a crap club manager! It is going to be such an easy game for us because we are the form side and that is not including the rather unfortunate loss to Stoke last game. But we are going to wipe the smile off Klinsmann's face even though we have a crap referee in charge.
The F.A. have also spoke about the appointment of Marriner for this game. We believe that he is the best man for the job but will be keeping an extra eye on him because we are now aware that he has told other referee's about Mr. Buttner and we now except this is against our policy but we have just given him a warning.
Marriner takes charge of United vs Liverpool
This match has got the hype but can it live up to it? That is the question.
