United Are NOT Scared Of Barcelona

We can be pretty certain that Sir Alex's priority for the Champions League final will be solid defending - everything else comes on top of that only. However, Nemanja Vidic reckons that does not mean we're not going to attack Barcelona.

'Barcelona have some good players, especially up front, so it won't be easy. They have played some good football and scored a lot of goals this season and we have great respect for them.

'But we must concentrate on ourselves and what we're going to do. We're not just going to go there and defend; we want to attack them as well.

'We have players that can cause defenders problems and score goals. When we've needed goals this season we've scored them.

'In some games we've been one or two goals down, but have still come back to win. That shows that when we need to score our attackers have produced.'


It can't be denied that our attack massively underperformed in the league this season - 67 goals in 37 games is just not good enough. Still, the quality is there, we've proved that plenty of times so there's really no reason to be scared of Barcelona.

No reason to be scared of Barcelona. Take it from me, fear the referee.

Maybe the next time Manyoo play Barcelona there will be a little fear. The Catalans played a superb game and were better in every department.
