Lucio relishes Bayern reunion

Inter centre-back Lucio is looking forward to taking on Bayern Munich again in the Champions League.

The two sides met in the Final last season, but February's rematch has a special meaning for Lucio, as he played for Bayern between 2004 and 2009.

Speaking to Bild, he said: "It will be a great emotion and a very balanced game. Bayern play a similar style of football at home and away.

"I hope that Inter manage to qualify, but it will be very tough. Bayern have got everything it takes to go through, as they are a strong team and always fight until the end.

"I have no feelings of revenge. Anyway it was important to me as Bayern sold me because I was no longer important.

"This increased the consciousness in my own means and the desire to win. Our victory was my perfect response."
