Jose Mourinho is not afraid of facing Manchester United[LNB]next week as the Inter Milan boss knows what it takes to beat  Sir Alex  Ferguson.[LNB]Mourinho got the better of Ferguson's United while boss of Porto and his Chelsea side lost just once in 12 meetings with the Red Devils.[LNB]Ahead of welcoming Ferguson to the san Siro for the Champions League last-16 tie, Morinho said: 'I've already played against Manchester United several times and I  know perfectly their way of playing. We'll have time to  prepare ourselves for that game.[LNB][LNB][LNB] Squaring up: The old rivalry between Mourinho (left) and Ferguson, both Champions League winners, will give their last-16 clash extra spice[LNB]'We're not afraid of Manchester United and we know we can beat them, even though I recognise that they're a strong team with a lot of qualities. [LNB]'We have to understand that it is a game with completely different characteristics to those we have in Milan, for example. It is a knock-out competition, against a team from another country, which plays in a different  way.[LNB]'That's why the preparation and the way of approaching the game will also have to be different. But on the day of the match we'll be ready to face them.'[LNB] Inter are encouraged by last weekend's derby win against  AC Milan, a result which strengthened their position as clear leaders in Serie  A. [LNB]But Mourinho added: 'I haven't yet decided if we're going to play the same way because  Manchester United have their own way of playing. [LNB]'But I like what we did against AC Milan. The team had its own personality and knew exactly what it was doing. [LNB]'First, we'll think about the league game against  Bologna, which will be very difficult, and then, yes, we'll start to think about  Manchester United.'[LNB] It's just a matter of time before Ronaldo joins us, claim Real Madrid[LNB]MAN UNITED v Fulham: Rooney returns for Red Devils[LNB]Man United v FULHAM: Johnson and Konchesky in fitness fight[LNB]Ballack backing new Chelsea boss Hiddink to catch Manchester United[LNB]MANCHESTER UNITED FC NEWS FROM ACROSS THE NET[LNB][LNB] [LNB]
