Manchester City's James Milner: 'We can take on anyone in Champions League'

James Milner insists that Manchester City are a match for any side they face in the last 16 of the Champions League.

Manchester City midfielder James Milner has insisted that he and his teammates are not concerned by whom they will face in the next round of the Champions League.

Manuel Pellegrini's side progressed to the last 16 of Europe's premier club competition as runners-up in Group D following a 3-2 comeback victory over Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.

"We'll take anyone," the Daily Star quotes him as saying. "We will just concentrate on us. It's going to be a tough team whoever we get, but we'll take confidence from this and know we can progress.

"It couldn't be tougher than Bayern. They are the reigning champions and I think they have been to three finals in the last four years, or something ridiculous like that.

"They're obviously one of the top teams and have been the last few years, so to be able to come here and win is pleasing. Hopefully it shows the quality we have and gives us a big confidence boost going forward."

City are currently fourth in the Premier League table.
