Stamford Bridge battle awaits Mourinho's Inter Milan

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2009-12-18

Returns to Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford are in store for Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho and AC Milan's David Beckham after UEFA drew the pairings for the next round of the Champions League on Friday.

AFP - David Beckham is set to return to Old Trafford after Manchester United were drawn with AC Milan on Friday for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

The England midfielder, who won the Champions League with United in 1999 before joining Real Madrid in 2003, will return to Milan in January for a second loan spel.

Beckham left United for Real Madrid in 2003 and has not yet come up against the club where he made his name. But he had admitted he would love to return.

"It's been seven years and I want it to happen. Me against Manchester United would be great, wouldn't it?" Beckham said ahead of the draw.

"It would be very difficult but also very exciting, I love the big games."

Chelsea take on former manager Jose Mourinho after being drawn against his current club Inter Milan. Mourinho led Chelsea to Premier League titles in 2005 and 2006 before leaving early in the 2007/2008 season.

Arsenal take on Portuguese side Porto as all three English clubs play the first leg of their ties away from home after winning their groups.


Draw for the last 16, knockout round:

Inter Milan (ITA) v Chelsea (ENG)

Lyon (FRA) v Real Madrid (ESP)

AC Milan (ITA) v Manchester United (ENG)

Olympiakos (GRE) v Bordeaux (FRA)

FC Porto (POR) v Arsenal (ENG)

CSKA Moscow (RUS) v Sevilla (ESP)

Stuttgart (GER) v Barcelona (ESP)

Bayern Munich (GER) v Fiorentina (ITA)


First leg: February 16/17, 23/24

Second leg: March 9/10, 16/17
