Schalke's Christoph Metzelder: We will give everything against Manchester United at Old Trafford

Christoph Metzelder insists Schalke will give everything in the second leg of their Champions League semi-final against Manchester United, after losing the first encounter at home 2-0.

Goals from Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney enabled Sir Alex Ferguson's side to run out deserved victors in Gelsenkirchen, with a place in the final now looking dubious for the German outfit.

"We know it's not an easy task but we'll give everything," Metzelder told German media after the game.

"Except for a few moments in the first ten minutes we could not stand up to United. This was due to their class but it is clear we had proposed more than we could show," he continued, referring to the club's 7-3 aggregate victory over Inter in the quarter-final.

The two sides meet again at Old Trafford on May 4 with Schalke hoping for another wonderful away performance in the Champions League, similar to that of their 5-2 victory at San Siro versus Inter.
