Evra : I'm Ready To Face Becks

PATRICE EVRA admits he cannot wait to try shackle David Beckham in the Champions League.

The draw for the knockout stages pitted Beckham's old club Manchester United against AC Milan, who he joins on loan in January.

And Beckham should get the chance to face Alex Ferguson's men during his spell in Italy.

United left-back Evra said: "I am very happy for David Beckham.

"He did a lot of great things for Manchester United and I want to say to him "welcome home".

"I have met him. He is a gentleman. He is a good person and a good professional. This is why Milan wanted him to go back there.

"I like that type of player. He is still one of the best right-footed players in the world.

"But I hope he plays badly and I intend to make sure he doesn't do very well."

Evra knows there will be plenty of hype around Beckham ahead of the big match.

And he is unsure to whether it will affect the England star's performance.

Evra added: "Who can say whether it will help or not the fact that all the focus will be on him.

"After all, when we played against Barcelona it was all Messi v Ronaldo. For us it is normal. The pressure is normal.

"I am more interested in playing against AC Milan than David Beckham.

"What I do know is that our confidence is high. For us, the target every year is to reach the final, and from there to win it."
