Rio Ferdinand has come up with a gameplan as to how Manchester United can defeat Barcelona in the second leg of the Champions League tonight.
Man United legend was one of the best centre-backs of his generation and when he says something, you’ve got to sit back and pay heed to that.
“I think he has to make sure they’re tight at the back.
“The first 15 minutes they wouldn’t want a repeat of that they looked nervy, they looked on edge a little bit in the first 15 minutes and that’s when Barca were turning the screw.
“If they can come out and be on the front foot and change the pace of the game, I think Barca are used to playing at their own pace, if they can change the pace of the game and put them under a bit of pressure then we’re going to get a couple of chances hopefully and we’ll put them away.”
They’ve got to score when they go there, they didn’t get one shot on target at so that’s something they’ll want to work on.
Well, that was the gameplan Rio Ferdinand wants Man United to go in with. However, when it comes to prediction, here’s what the former England International thinks:
“My heart says yes they can but I think it’s more about what Messi turns up, he’s that great and done so much at a top level for a consistent period of time. It could be 1-0 Man United and then we go penalties.”
Rio thinks it will end 1-0 to Man United with the game being decided on the penalties and I believe him. GGMU!
