Philipp Lahm happy with "superb draw"

Philipp Lahm is looking forward to returning to Old Trafford with Bayern Munich after the two sides were drawn against each other in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has revealed that being pitted against Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the Champions League is a "superb draw" for them.

Lahm said that it will be exciting to play at Old Trafford again and, with the close games that the clubs have had historically, is anticipating a tricky encounter.

"It's a superb draw," Lahm told the club's official website. "It's a wonderful stadium with a terrific atmosphere and a history of great clashes. We can look forward to it.

"We'll definitely go to Manchester intending to attack. We're the holders and one of the big favourites to win the Champions League.

"But we mustn't be deceived by United's current position in the table. They have outstanding individual players. We'll have to perform well and if we do, we'll have a good chance of making the semi-finals."
