Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking forward to facing AC Milan and former Red Devils striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the Europa League round of 16.

In addition to Ibrahimovic, Milan also feature on-loan Man Utd defender Diogo Dalot.

"We just continue our tradition of picking difficult teams," the manager told Sky Sportsof the draw."It's a tie that feels like a Champions League game as well, which is good.

"I think it's important for our team to always have that demand and not feel that it's a given. And of course this is not a gimme – Milan, they're on the up, they've done really well this season.

"They've got some former friends of ours. The history of the club is fantastic so we're looking forward to facing them."

OnIbrahimovic,Solskjaeradded:"It's incredible what he's done.

"When wethink back when he was here, when he had a career-threatening injury and the way he's come back, the way he's played, the way he's moved AC Milan towards the top of the league again.

"And of course Diogo is there. So we know that we're in for a good fightbut before then we have a few other games that we have to look after."

At 39 years old, Ibrahimovic has put together an extremely impressive season thus far, netting 16 goals in all competitions for Milan – including 14 in Serie A.
