Man Utd’s weakness in midfield was ruthlessly exposed by Barcelona in the Champions League final.
I have to say that before their Champions League final win over Man Utd, I was one of the sceptics about Barcelona. They’re not the greatest team defensively and I’m not convinced about their goalkeeper, but you have to say that from midfield onwards, they have some of the best players in the world, with the likes of Iniesta, Xavi and Messi. Still, it’s always said in football that one of the pre-requisites for a successful team is a strong spine, and I felt that was something Barcelona lacked.
