Louis van Gaal has insisted that Bayern Munich will not be scared of Manchester United.
The teams meet in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League quarter-final at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night, with United in ominous form ahead of the clash.
Wayne Rooney has been their star performer this season and Van Gaal admits the striker has become a force to be reckoned with.
However, the Bayern boss insists his side will go into the home game with a positive attitude and says it is United who should be worried.
"I never have fear and my players don't have any fear either," said Van Gaal.
"We value Rooney's quality. He is a super footballer. When he was younger, I often wondered whether he had the vision in his game.
"He has developed that now and is very hard to mark out of the game.
"But we can manage because we also have quality. Ferguson and his players should be scared of that."
No Robben risk
Arjen Robben will be one of the main threats to United if he is passed fit but there are doubts about his involvement and Van Gaal is not prepared to take any risks.
"We need a player like Robben against Manchester United but if he is not 100%, he doesn't play," Van Gaal said.
"You have always got to be a bit careful with a player who dribbles at such high intensity. He is not injured but his muscle is tired."
