For those of Rio Ferdinand, Lionel Messi is clearly a serious threat to Manchester United's defense. However, he also knows that Barcelona's Lionel Messi is not just one.
So far, Messi has competed 54 times in all competitions. The number of goals he created? 52. Incredible, is not it?
However, there are still other Barca players who endanger bepotensi MU defense. Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta are also obviously have to get attention, if the 'Red Devils' did not want to Los Cules ruling in midfield with all operands fast.
On the front lines even Barca still have David Villa and Pedro Rodriguez. So, naturally when Ferdinand warned that his club did not focus on a Messi.
"Messi is one of, if not the only, the best in the world. He can hurt you in any area on the ground," he said as quoted by the Guardian.
"It's not about telling one or two people to guard it, this will be how we deal with the whole team,"said Ferdinand.
"However, they will think the same thing with the players we have. We also have players who can hurt you in any area in the field."
