Van Gaal welcomes reunion with Mourinho

Postby FCBayernNews » Thu Apr 29, 2010 10:45 am

Bayern must overcome the challenge posed by Inter Milan if they are to win the Champions League for the second time. The Italian champions knocked holders Barcelona out of this term's competition on Wednesday night, winning the semi-final tie 3-2 on aggregate. The Italians, who like Bayern currently lead their dometic championship, lost 1-0 in Spain, but won the home leg in Milan 3-1.

"We have a little bit more of a chance against Inter than against Barcelona," commented FCB coach Louis van Gaal after watching his team beat Olympique Lyon 3-0 on Tuesday: "Inter are not as attacking as Barcelona."

Van Gaal is especially looking forward to crossing swords with "my friend José Mourinho." The Inter boss was once a member of Van Gaal's staff at Barcelona. "That'll be a lot of fun," the Bayern coach declared. For a number of the players, there is also the prospect of a reunion with former Bayern stalwart Lucio.

Looking ahead to the final in Madrid on 22 May, Van Gaal sounded an optimistic note: "In a final, we're capable of beating anyone."
