Ernesto Valverde reveals the one thing he fears most about Manchester United

Manchester United face Barcelona at Nou Camp for their Champions League quarter-final second leg needing to overturn a 1-0 first-leg deficit. Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde knows his side are in the driving seat, but admits the one thing he fears most about United is their famous fighting spirit. PSG appeared to be on course to secure a quarter-final place following a 2-0 victory at Old Trafford, but United registered a dramatic upset in Paris by sealing a 3-1 victory to dump the French champions out of the competition. Marcus Rashford’s late penalty decided the tie after Presnell Kimpembe was controversially adjudged to have handled the ball in the area. “I don’t know what the team of United’s is going to do, but we do know that we have examples of what they have done in the Champions League away from home this season," Valverde said. “Manchester United have a special thing. They won a European Cup in the last few minutes (1999) - so we have to keep that in mind. “We know that our rival can go on the counter-attack, so we cannot allow that. What I fear most is the spirit that they have. We respect them as a team for what they are and the history they have. You can feel their spirit on the pitch and we expect to see that here.”
