Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina has warned Barcelona that Manchester United will ‘kill’ them if they show any fear in Wedneday’s Champions League final.
“It’s not easy to beat United,” he told Spanish newspaper Sport. “The key is to approach them head on.
“You can’t go out there with a heavy heart nor with fear, because if you do they’ll end up killing you. That’s what we did.
“United suffer when they don’t have the ball, like Barca. To beat them you have to dominate possession and play without fear, with nerve.
Platini predicts “unpredictable” and “beautiful” final.
“Football is unpredictable and then Barcelona and Manchester United are two very strong teams.
“Without a doubt it’s going to be a beautiful game.”
