The draw took place in Nyon, Switzerland, this morning (Friday).
"When I spoke with my chairman, CEO, sporting director, the people here working know and they give credit for what we have done in the last two seasons". Ajax last won the Champions League in 1995, while Manchester United last won in 2008 and Juventus most recently won in 1996.
Liverpool will host two-time European Cup winners Porto at Anfield in the first leg before heading to the Estadio do Dragao in the return on April 16 or 17.
Ajax will believe in their chances, but Juve look too strong for the Dutch outfit, and they will be determined to avoid the same mistakes that led to Real losing their crown against the men, and boys, from Amsterdam.
The former Reds midfielder also believes that Liverpool were the team in the draw that no other side wanted to be paired with.
"And that was maybe the main problem at Liverpool for the last decade".
"I want them to come back as quickly as possible, to get back to the routine", he said. And they face another highly charged away leg this time, with Spurs aiming to stage their home tie at their new stadium.
Manchester United's tie against Barcelona means caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will enjoy another trip to the Nou Camp, where he scored the victor in United's Champions League final win over Bayern Munich in 1999.
The Blues needed a goal in the 90th minute to eke out a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton as heavy -169 home favorites in their last league outing last weekend, and were outgunned by a 12-0 overall margin in three straight road matches prior to a 2-1 win at Fulham on March 3.
"It's Porto and we've played there already and we know how good we had to be previous year", he added.
Juventus have lost five finals since then but are hoping Ronaldo can fire them to glory this season after his hat-trick knocked out Atletico Madrid on Tuesday.
'Our first big mistake would be to try to do what Liverpool did there.
