Ferdinand Thrives On The Pressure

United's commanding defender believes the current team are much more mature than than a year ago and has every chance of reaching the next round of the Champions League.

The Reds take on Benfica in their final group game tomorrow and as they've been knocked out at the same stage last year, they must be wary about this hurdle. However, Rio Ferdinand believes the team is well equipped to stand up to the challenge.

'The situation doesn't breed nervousness in our dressing room. This squad doesn't get nervous,' Ferdinand told the Manchester Evening News.

'We thrive on situations now when the pressure is really up there and full on.

'The big games when people are asking questions about us or think we won't do well we seem to come through it. This is an opportunity to do that again.

'The mentality of the players is now a bit more resolute than it has been in the last couple of years. We can deal with this kind of situation now.'

But I expect United and Barca to go through... Barca will have a tough ride and they must be wary but United need only a draw and they never lost at home against Portuguese opponent.
