Man Utd skipper Vidic: More to Barcelona than Messi

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic knows there's more to Barcelona than just Lionel Messi.

The World Player of the Year scored the second goal in the 2009 final in Rome and has tormented defenders all season in the Champions League and La Liga.

However, the Reds captain is fully aware of the quality running all the way through Pep Guardiola's side.

"I'm thinking about the whole Barcelona team," said Vidic. "Messi's a great player and he's very hard to stop but I'm not underestimating the other players they have, especially Xavi and [Andres] Iniesta.

"They're players who can produce a good pass or a good performance in a vital game. This is a team that's not about one player. It's about the team and I think Barcelona play very well as a team."
