Bayern Munich to test Manchester United - Viv Anderson

Viv Anderson has warned Manchester United not to underestimate the threat of Bayern Munich in their Champions League quarter-final.

The game will be a repeat of the competition's 1999 final.

The former United defender told BBC Radio Manchester: "They've got some really good players who can hurt you on their day.

"They've got a lot of good international players with experience, it will be a really interesting tie."

Anderson believes Wayne Rooney will be the key man for United again.

"He's stepped up to the plate since Ronaldo's left, he's been in unbelievable form and I think everyone else has chipped in," he said.

And the former England international says United are well placed to retain the Premiership.

"The likes of Scholes, Giggs, Neville they've all been there, seen it and got the t-shirt, and they can influence the younger players around them," he said.

"Although Chelsea are a decent team they've got to come to Old Trafford, so it's all in our hands which you dream about being at this stage of the season."
