Manchester United winger Nani admits Barcelona’s passing game could cause his team trouble in the UEFA Champions League final.United will be looking to add to their English Premier League title when they take on Pep Guardiola’s team in the European decider at Wembley on May 28.
Nani said on Wednesday it was important for United to apply pressure and not allow Barcelona to settle into their possession game.
“It is a big problem because no-one likes to run behind the ball and try to get the ball all the time,” the Portuguese star said.
“It is very difficult when that happens but we must try to get the ball off them as quickly as possible because if we have the ball they cannot do the possession and we can get a goal if we have the ball.”
Sir Alex Ferguson’s team will need to stop the star-studded Barcelona team and Nani acknowledged the problems Lionel Messi, Xavi and Andres Iniesta would pose.
“I think Barcelona is a very talented team. They are special because of the way they play,” Nani said.
“We don’t have a lot of teams that can play the same style. Of course, they have very good players, individual players.”
Both United and Barcelona will be looking to win their fourth European crowns.
