United v Barcelona: "All roads lead to Rome"

Today will be 'the big game' between The Red Devils and Barcelona in Rome. The kick-off is at 19:45 GMT.

Now, I leave you a small talk with Anderson and his desires to win the trophy for second consecutive time in two years.

How much are you looking forward to the final?
Everybody knows that United and Barcelona are two great sides and it has all the makings of being a great final and one that will be talked about for many years to come. Getting to play in games like this with the chance to win trophies is the reason why we work so hard every day. I hope to be involved, but just being part of a team that is playing in a final is fantastic and I think it will be a very special occasion for every one of us.

Will you draw on the experience of last season’s showpiece?
Yes, of course. It’s always a great experience to play in a final and you learn many things. You understand how to better deal with certain situations and focus on the little things that you might have missed the last time round.

Will you take confidence from Barcelona's indifferent record against English sides?
Not really because every game is different. I’m sure Barcelona will be fully focused on doing well, just like we will be and it should be a great game.

How pleased have you been with your form of late?
I was injured for part of the season and coming back from that was a slow process because I had to get myself right physically and mentally. I’m enjoying my football at the moment and I hope I can keep helping the team to win trophies.

Are the players aware of the history you can create by becoming the first team to retain the trophy?
Of course. We have every intention of winning the trophy, but we would want that anyway no matter whether we were going for back-to-back wins. We always want to win every competition we play in and it’s our aim to do that on Wednesday.

I read this note from manutd.com. but if you want, you can go there and read the entire note.

So, Don`t miss this big game! I will be very anxious for being Champions of Europe again!!

Thanks for reading!
