Macari backs United

United were paired with Jose Mourinho’s Inter in the Champions League last 16 draw on Friday.

“We talked about Italian teams before the draw not being at their best and I agree with that, but you expect Mourinho to show up and win games,” he told Sky Sports News.

“He knows all about that in the Champions League. He knows how to win games with whatever players he has and it’s a tough game for Manchester United.

“I am sure they’d have preferred other teams, but that’s the tie they’ve got.

“The big thing is that second leg at Old Trafford. If they can make sure the first leg in Milan is quite close, then back at Old Trafford they can get through.”
