Manchester United legend Andy Cole has revealed how the Red Devils can upset Barcelona and progress to the Semi Final of the Champions League.

Andy Cole was part of our side in 1999 that went on to win a treble while also drawing 3-3 TWICE with the Catalan side in the group stage before going onto win the whole competition.

And now Cole wants United to use that as an inspiration and play a fearless brand of attacking Football:

“Go and do the same thing,” Cole said. “Go and enjoy it. We knew we were a very good team and Barcelona were a very good team.

“But we showed no fear there. A lot of teams go there and show a bit of fear. They had fantastic players but so did we.

“We went out there and played football. They did the same. That season both games ended up 3-3 and that told you everything about both teams.

“We were respectful but we both tried to beat each other. But six goals in each game speaks volumes about two teams trying to play attacking, attractive football.”

Andy Cole also acknowledged the fact that Barcelona has a player called Lionel Messi who might be a wee bit difficult to stop:

“Anything is possible in football matches. United have proven that against PSG and, yes, they are going to have to play extremely well because they have an impish little genius in (Lionel) Messi.

“I have watched him closely over many years and I look at him now and think he is getting better as he gets older.

“If he has an off night or he is injured or whatever, then you never know what can happen.”
