Ronaldinho eager to face Liverpool

Share |

Ronaldinho Gaucho says he is under no illusions about how tough it will be to knock Liverpool Football Club out of the Champions League.

The current champions will take on the 2005 winners in the tie of the round, with Liverpool travelling to the Nou Camp for the first leg.

In fact, Ronaldinho says he knows the Reds will be a serious threat to the Catalan club's grip on the trophy: "Liverpool have a very shrewd manager in Rafa Benitez and I understand his record while managing Valencia was really good against Barcelona.

"I think that they also have the bonus of having Spanish players in the side so they will know what to expect. Naturally I'm a big fan of Steven Gerrard. I like committed and passionate players. He's a really good player and would warrant a place in any side throughout Europe."
