What kind of final can we expect on Wednesday?
Everybody knows that United and Barcelona are two great sides and it has all the makings of being a great final and one that will be talked about for many years to come. Getting to play in games like this with the chance to win trophies is the reason why we work so hard every day. I hope to be involved, but just being part of a team that is playing in a final is fantastic and I think it will be a very special occasion for every one of us.

Will you draw on the experience of last season’s showpiece?

Yes, of course. It’s always a great experience to play in a final and you learn many things. You understand how to better deal with certain situations and focus on the little things that you might have missed the last time round.

Will United take confidence from the fact Barcelona have not always done so well against English sides in the last few years?
Not really because every game is different. I’m sure Barcelona will be fully focused on doing well, just like we will be and it should be a great game.

How pleased have you been with your form of late?
I was injured for part of the season and coming back from that was a slow process because I had to get myself right physically and mentally. I’m enjoying my football at the moment and I hope I can keep helping the team to win trophies.

Is the chance to make history by defending the trophy something the players are thinking about?
Of course. We have every intention of winning the trophy, but we would want that anyway no matter whether we were going for back-to-back wins. We always want to win every competition we play in and it’s our aim to do that on Wednesday.
