I’d Go All Out Attack – Former Manchester United Star On Barcelona Clash


Quinton Fortune has urged the Manchester United attackers to get at the Barcelona defence and make it an uncomfortable night for them at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Manchester United are massive underdogs going into the quarter-final tie against the Spanish giants, with the first leg set to take place at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Barcelona did beat Atletico Madrid over the weekend at home, but last week they played out a brilliant 4-4 draw at Villarreal, which Fortune feels could be Manchester United’s template.

He feels the key to last week’s result was unlike most other teams Villarreal managed to put the Barcelona defence under pressure, which led to them conceding four goals.


The former Red Devil believes that the Barcelona centre-backs are susceptible to pace and Manchester United must look to get behind them at Old Trafford.

Fortune believes it must be made to be one of the most uncomfortable nights for the Barcelona defence on Wednesday night as in the return leg, Manchester United will face the music at the Camp Nou.


The former Red Devil said on MUTV: “Teams are scared and the fear factor about [Lionel] Messi and the few other players, they forget to play their own game.

“Villarreal don’t know any other way of playing and they took the game to Barcelona and played with pace.

“The likes of Jordi Alba, [Nelson] Semedo or Sergi Roberto go forward and [Clement] Lenglet and [Gerard] Pique are not the quickest.

“I’d fancy Marcus [Rashford], [Romelu] Lukaku and [Anthony] Martial against them any day. I’ll go all-out attack.”

He added: “I’d say to those three whenever they have the ball I expect them to run at Pique and put him under pressure.

“You don’t want them to come here and knock the ball around.

“You want to make it impossible for them because, at the Camp Nou, they will make it impossible for us.”
