Fergie would like to play Barcelona in Champions League finalApril 7th, 2009 - 2:35 pm ICT by ANI
London, Apr.7 (ANI): Manchester United coach Alex Ferguson says that while he would be happy to see three English clubs in the Champions League semi-finals, he would like to play Barcelona in the finals.
The Manchester United boss rejected thoughts of another all-England final like last year’s in Moscow when his team overcame Chelsea in a penalty shootout.
The Blues and Liverpool meet in a quarter-final showdown with the winner facing Barca or Bayern Munich in the last four.
Arsenal could lie in wait for United in the semis if Fergie’s arch-rivals beat Villarreal.
But in a snub to Chelsea and Liverpool, Ferguson is only contemplating a showdown with the Spanish giants in Rome next month.
The Sun quoted him as saying: “Hopefully, we will get through to meet Barcelona in the final - and what an unbelievable match that would be. (ANI)
