Silvestre reflects on Man Utd 1 Barcelona 0 in 2008


It’s exactly 12 years to the day since we beat the Catalans 1-0 at Old Trafford to secure our place in the final of Europe’s elite competition, after a scoreless first leg at the Nou Camp a week prior.

United’s defensive showing during the second meeting was a masterclass of discipline and composure, as the likes of Lionel Messi, Thierry Henry and Samuel Eto’o were denied a route through.

Speaking on Wednesday’s MUTV Group Chat, Mikael Silvestre explained that this solidity was mainly down to the detailed planning of Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant manager at the time.
