Milan-Man Utd: how the Rossoneri reacted to Europa League draw

According to Sky Sport Italia, some Milan players reacted with a sarcastic smile after knowing they had picked up Manchester United in the Europa League round of 16.

The Rossoneri will face Manchester United for the first time in 11 years in the last 16 stage of the Europa League in March.

According to Sky Sport, some Milan players welcomed the news with frustration.
