Pique wishing Barca clash was final

Gerard Pique's only regret is that Manchester United face Barcelona in the semi-final of the Champions League and not the final.

That would be a dream date for the 21-year-old Spanish defender who moved to Old Trafford from the Nou Camp in October 2004.

'I think a lot of people would like to see a final between those two clubs,' he said.

Pique gave a composed display in the 3-0 aggregate victory against Roma last night when he returned to the team as Nemanja Vidic is injured.

He enjoyed the experience and is looking forward to returning home in a fortnight.

Pique said: 'It means a lot to go back. It will be a great feeling as I grew up there.

'Barcelona are one of the best teams in Europe but we have a good chance. Everyone at United is playing really well and we hope to progress.

'It is very easy to play in this team because everyone knows their role. It is enjoyable as well.'

A goal from Carlos Tevez put the match out of Roma's reach and Pique added: 'We created a number of chances and played really well.

'We knew if Roma got a goal they would get back in the match but instead we scored and got the victory so that was pleasing.'
