Andy Cole facepalmed himself when he made Manchester United he would have faced Barcelona rather than the bitter rivals of Manchester City in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The Red Devils legend, who was part of the United team that won the competition in 1998/99, works as an ambassador for his former club and was in Nyon for the draw.

Manchester United were awarded a draw against a starred Barcelona training for the quarter-finals, and Cole did not hide his emotions when he realized that they would face the Catalan giants of Lionel Messi.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men were one of only three teams left in the hat, with a set to face Tottenham Hotpsur over the last eight and the other two to face off.

When Manchester City was revealed as the side that will face Spurs, Cole could not hide his disappointment and threw a hand in his face.

Pep Guardiola's Man City is seen by many as the favorites but it seems that the legendary striker would have preferred a Manchester derby to a trip to the Camp Nou …

The winner of Barcelona and Manchester United will face Liverpool or Porto, while City or Spurs will face the winner of Juventus and Ajax.
