After suffering their second defeat on such an occasion in three years at Wembley on Saturday, Manchester United could be forgiven for wanting to avoid the Catalans for a little while.

As Barcelona's average age is younger than their own, United might wonder if it is possible for them ever to get the better of Lionel Messi and company, who destroyed them with an awesome passing display.

However, rather than be fearful, Evra is already steeling himself for the challenge of a rematch in Munich 12 months from now.

"Manchester United never die," he told MUTV. "We are not afraid. I want to come back to the final and play against Barcelona again.

"Manchester United had a good season - not a great season because we didn't win on Saturday night - but we have still won the league and we are going to win the league again next year, and make sure we win the Champions League as well."
