Sir Alex savours United triumph

Published: Thursday 11 March 2010, 0.03CET
A jubilant Sir Alex Ferguson said "with that kind of team we've got it doesn't matter who we play" after his Manchester United FC side eased into the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals courtesy of a 7-2 aggregate defeat of AC Milan. "When we play with that tempo we're difficult to play against; it was a solid United performance," explained the United manager following the 4-0 victory at Old Trafford. Like he did in the first leg in Italy, Wayne Rooney scored twice, taking his tally for the season to 30. "He just keeps improving and tonight again he was sensational," added Sir Alex.
