Sir Alex Ferguson wont be taking any chances with the French club after saying:
Marseille are a handful at their own ground, their fantastic atmosphere and incredible support guarantees that. They’ve had a good chance in fortunes in the last two or three years after a dry spell and think it’ll be a difficult tie.
Ferguson is also looking forward to meeting Gabriel Heinze who moved from United in 2007 joining Real Madrid for a reported £8 million fee. On 30 July 2009, Heinze joined Marseille for an undisclosed fee keeping him at the club till 2011.
I obviously expect Manchester United to beat Marseille with no disrespect to the French club. The Premier League is a total different level to the Ligue1 when it comes to quality and that’s the reason I’m so confident about this game.
