Massimo Ambrosini knows that Wayne Rooney is the man AC Milan have to stop as they attempt to overturn a 3-2 deficit against Manchester United FC. "He is a star player on the world stage and unfortunately for us we saw that in the first leg," said the midfielder. "He's been very much in the spotlight in the Italian press and we've all seen how he's got even better than he was in the past. He's a complete player; he's consistent and is undoubtedly one of the best in the world."
