Roma midfielder De Rossi wants revenge against Man Utd

He told Roma Channel: “It’s an encounter of great fascination, just like it would have been fascinating meeting Barcelona or Real Madrid.

“We will also have a great desire of revenge from our side, because in that game we suffered the biggest defeat of our career. A defeat which still burns us, as it cannot be cancelled or forgotten, but we cannot go back.

“However it’s also important, apart from going through to the next round of the Champions League, which is the best competition there is, also to remove some ghosts.”
