thumbnail Hello,

Gerard Pique believes he can use his time at Manchester United to aid Barcelona's tactical strategy in the Champions League final.

Having spent four years in the Manchester United camp, Gerard Pique has been relaying the secrets he learned at Old Trafford to his team-mates in Spain.

Hopeful that his information will prove invaluable to Barcelona as they face the Red Devils tomorrow night, Pique believes that he has identified several weak links in the United chain.

"I’ve spoken to Pep Guardiola and have said what I think they will do," admitted Pique, quoted by the Times.

"Let’s hope what I’ve said can help the team and help us to attack them where they have their weaknesses."

Pique had to watch last year's European clash between the two whilst sharing a bench with Sir Alex Ferguson's substitutes, but will be happy to remember United struggling to gain possession against the Spanish giants.

"When Barcelona have got the ball it is really difficult, so I think this game will have a similar pattern to last year’s semi-finals. We will tend to keep the ball and play really deep and they will try to counterattack with some good, quick passes to arrive in the area and score," Pique went on.

"To be the best team in Europe you have to beat the best teams. Manchester United is the last winner of the Champions League and now we have to beat them to take their title."
