Sir Alex Ferguson has claimed that he had a funny feeling that we were going to be drawn against Real Madrid in this year’s Champions League and therefore face our former superstar, Cristiano Ronado.

However, on the night that we beat AC Milan 4-0, Real Madrid were knocked out by Lyon, the current fourth best team in France, with a United scout in the crowd watching on.

“In my mind, I had a thought that, somewhere along the line, we were going to meet them and Ronaldo would be up against us,” said Ferguson. “We would have needed a machine gun to stop him! I am disappointed for Ronaldo not having qualified. We had someone at the game and the report was he was absolutely fantastic.”
