The Manchester United vs Barcelona Champions League final has been billed as the final neutrals were looking for. Two great teams who play brilliant attacking football fighting out for the European crown.

Nemanja Vidic has played this idea down though, claiming he is far more interested in winning than he is with playing beautiful football.

“All that matters is the result, you’ll quickly forget about the style,” said Vidic. “Football is not about the style – it’s about the winning and we have the confidence and belief to do it. I don’t think we are arrogant – we respect Barcelona but we believe in ourselves and in the players we have. We won the league and have reached the Champions League final so we have to believe we can win it. We know it’s going to be a hard game and have big jobs to do but we are excited and we will try to hurt them.”
