Sir Alex Ferguson has spoken with Italian press today, showing his confidence ahead of our second leg against Inter Milan on Wednesday. Speaking with Gazzetta dello Sport, Ferguson claims we limitted Inter to just a couple of half chances and following intense preparation, we should make it through to the quarters.

“In the build-up to a match against Jose I have to expect everything from him,” said Ferguson. “But we are preparing in the same way as after the 0-0 in the Nou Camp. An intense and efficient preparation, which worked very well. We controlled them well in Milan – Inter only had a couple of half-chances in the second half. My players played with an incredible level of concentration. They have to do the same in the return leg.”
