Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists they hold no fears of Barcelona.

The two clubs have been kept apart until the Champions League final.

A meeting with Pep Guardiola's men is something Ferguson would relish, even though old friend Harry Redknapp has labelled them the best club side ever.

"Hopefully they have reached their peak already," said Ferguson.

"They are an example to everyone of how to play football.

"Xavi and Andres Iniesta show so much courage to always want to take the ball and they have the little magician Lionel Messi up front, who is wonderful to watch.

"People say they don't want to play against them. I think it is a privilege.

"It is the kind of challenge you want."
