Manchester United 'need to be wary of Schalke threat'

26th April 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

Manchester United's Sir Alex Ferguson has underlined the threat faced by Schalke in the upcoming Champions League semi-final football games.

The football manager admitted that he has been impressed with the German side's form in the competition and is keen not to underestimate them.

"They [Schalke] have beaten every team they have played in the Champions League at home this season, including Valencia and Inter Milan," he explained during a press conference.

"Taken in isolation, that's fantastic form and there is no way Manchester United are going to be led into believing that this is easy."

The two sides meet tonight, but Sir Alex will have one eye on next weekend's Premier League football game against championship rivals Arsenal.

Victory over the Gunners could prove crucial to securing the league title, particularly as they are due to face second-placed Chelsea the following Sunday (May 8th), following the Champions League second leg on May 4th.
