Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes says must take the game to Barcelona in the Champions League final at Wembley on Saturday.

The 36-year-old was part of the United side that was convincingly beaten by Barca in 2009, as the Catalan's possession game squeezed the life out of their English opponents.

But on this occasion, on home soil, schools says United can't afford to sit back.

"There is a determination to make sure that doesn't happen again," he said.


"It wasn't a nice night and the summer afterwards felt very long. This time we intend to at least give it a go."

"Barcelona are the ultimate. They are what we all look to and want to play like.

"But our football can be just as good as theirs at times. We have a lot of quality too.

"Both teams want to go forward and score goals, so I don't think anyone could ask for a bigger or a better final."
