Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has told reporters that he is wary over the threat posed by German side Schalke 04 ahead of the Champions League semi-final first leg clash tonight.
Said the Scot:
"Aye, it's going to be a tricky one. Their name suggests they've already scored four goals, and that's making my players nervous. Overhauling a four goal deficit - even at Old Trafford - would be a stern task!"
Sir Alex also said he was concerned over the spelling of the German team's name.
"Aye, it's a bit uncanny. If you take away the 'k' and replace it with an 'e', you can rearrange the letters into the word 'Chelsea'. It gives me the jitters, so it does," he laughed nervously.
