thumbnail Hello,

Barcelona will have another supporter backing them next week in Rome as Pepe Reina hopes they can beat Manchester United...

Pepe Reina has stated that he would not like to see Manchester United winning yet another trophy this season and is hoping that his former club Barcelona can beat them in next week's Champions League final.

The Liverpool goalkeeper has already been on the winning side on two occasions against Sir Alex Ferguson's team this term, and hopes that Barca can follow suit.

With Manchester United already having won the Carling Cup and the Premier League title, as well as the World Club Cup, Reina is not keen on seeing his team's traditional rivals conquer Europe again.

Reina hopes that Pep Guardiola's team can copy Liverpool's style against the Red Devils and explained how he believes Rafa Benitez steered the team to a double victory.

“The truth is that it is not easy to beat Manchester United twice in a season,” he told RAC-1 radio station.

“The key was that we approached both games with nerve and played a passing game from man to man. That is the way to do most damage," he continued.

“I believe Barca will play that way and I hope they win because they are a Spanish team and because I don’t want our great rivals winning titles."
