Rio Ferdinand Fit for Champions league final

Ferdinand has declared himself fit to face Barcelona in the Champions League final on Wednesday night.

The Manchester United defender has been struggling with a calf injury sustained earlier this month, and did not make Sunday’s Premier League trip to Hull, as demanded by Sir Alex Ferguson.

However, Ferdinand said: “The injury is fine. I have been training and feel good. I am glad to be back.”

Barcelona duo Thierry Henry and Andres Iniesta are racing to be fit, but Dani Alves, Eric Abidal, Rafael Marquez and Gabriel Milito are all out

Dimitar Berbatov is already having doubts about taking a penalty in Wednesday’s Champions League final in Rome.

Berbatov was on the end of some harsh criticism for a tame spot-kick against Everton in the FA Cup semi-final defeat and the Bulgarian has admitted the incident has shaken his confidence.

He said: “That hurt. I’m not sure I’d step up now.”

Uefa president Michel Platini is confident security arrangements for the Champions League final are in place, paving the way for a “beautiful game”.

More than 67,000 fans are expected in the Italian capital, as Manchester United take on Barcelona under the watchful eye of 5,000 police officers.

Platini said: “All is under control, we don’t have any security concerns. Let’s pray that all goes well.”
