FC Barcelona – The 2008/2009 champions in Europe


No doubts Barcelona merited to win the final.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson paid tribute to the newly-crowned European champions Barcelona, admitting, “We were beaten by the better side.”

“I don’t think we played as well as we can, but we were playing against a very good side, and we’ve got to give them credit.”

But despite the manner of United’s first Champions League defeat since the 2007 semi-final, Sir Alex paid tribute to his team’s efforts throughout a successful season.

“We’ve done well. It has been a long season – that was our 66th game – and you’ve got to give the players great credit for the courage and resilience they’ve shown throughout.

“Now we have to come back stronger. That’s what we do at this club. We have to accept it, we’ve been beaten by the better team. Next season, we’ll be stronger.”

Manchester United won 4 final cups this season:

Charity Shield

FIFA Club World Champions 2008

Carling Cup

Premier League

    Definitely Barça are deserved winners, they out-played United in every position on the field, while United players were just walking on the field not knowing how to stop this Barça tide from sweeping them away
