Man Utd boss Ferguson confident Ferdinand will make Barcelona clash

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson insists Rio Ferdinand will be fit for the Champions League final, despite missing yesterday's win at Hull City.

"Rio is coming along fine," he told MUTV. "He trained on Saturday and today with the other players who were also training. I think he's on course to play on Wednesday."

The only other question marks surround the fitness of Rafael and Wes Brown who both picked up minor knocks in the 1-0 win at the KC Stadium.

"I took Rafael off [as a precaution] and we'll get him checked on Monday, but hopefully he'll be okay," revealed Sir Alex.

"Wes got a little knock, but given that it was his first game back after so long out we're thankful he's come through well overall."
