Champions League: Guardiola singles out nine players from “incredible” Man Utd squad


ENGLAND – Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has picked out nine players from Manchester United’s 2009 team, that lost to his Barcelona side in the Champions League final.

Barca beat the Red Devils 2-0 at Stadio Olimpico, as Guardiola won his first European title.

The LaLiga giants also won the competition two years later, again against Manchester United, this time with a 3-1 scoreline.

“That was outrageous, it was outstanding.

“So you know Cristiano Ronaldo, [Carlos Tevez, [Dimitar] Berbatov, [Paul] Scholes, [Michael] Carrick, [Ryan] Giggs, [Rio] Ferdinand, [Nemanja] Vidic, [Edwin] Van der Sar. It was an incredible team.

“We had a lot of problems with their back four. We had three injuries in the starting XI. But we [Barcelona] were full of confidence, we’d won the league and the cup and we did it,” Guardiola told BT Sport’s What I Wore.
