Champions in Champions League!

We will face reigning champions Inter Milan in the group stages of the Champions League.

We were drawn in Group A in Monaco alongside Italian giants Inter, German side Werder Bremen and Dutch champions FC Twente.

Led by Jose Mourinho, Inter took the crown with a classy display and 2-0 win against Bayern Munich in the final in May.

Mourinho moved on to Real Madrid in the summer - with former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez now in charge at the San Siro.

Werder Bremen finished third in the Bundesliga and beat Sampdoria in the play-off to reach the group stages.

Meanwhile, FC Twente, formerly managed by ex-England boss Steve McClaren, earned their place in the group stages by winning their first Dutch title last season.

We will play all three teams home and away.

The dates for the group matches are yet to be confirmed.

However, the matchdays are as follows - September 14/15, September 28/29, October 19/20, November 3/4, November 23/24 and December 7/8.

As soon as we know the dates, we will publicise through our normal channels.
