“They are really strong and it’s really, really difficult to find vulnerabilities there.

“I always assess the virtues of our rival, but of course we will try to find a way to try and hurt them, try and find our way to the goal, if you like.”

The Argentine believes that Manchester United have turn around for good under new manager Ralf Rangnick.

He further stated that they are one of the best in the world right now as they have just lost one game since the arrival of the German.

“We’re facing one of the best teams in the world in the last 14 games, if I’m not mistaken,” Simeone said. “They’ve just lost one. With the new manager, Ralf Rangnick, it’s given the team solidity, teamwork, commitment.

“We can see what Manchester United was always like. They’ve evolved since the new manager arrived, they’re already fourth in the league.

He added that the team has lots of quality in it and they are players that makes huge effort and try to unite.

“It’s an intense, dynamic team, very brave, with very good forwards, very good footballers overall and who try to make a huge effort to try and unite the huge talents they have in 11 players.

“It’s going to be a very difficult game, as every Champions League game is. But we have a lot of anticipation to play in our stadium in front of our fans and we’re lucky to play the last 16 at home because we couldn’t play that, we couldn’t do that last year.”
