Final defeat fires O'Shea

John O'Shea agrees that last season was probably his best in a United shirt – three winners' medals and more than 50 appearances attest to that.

But the Irishman is still hurt by memories of the Champions League final defeat to Barcelona, and says that will be driving him and his team-mates on as Wolfsburg visit Old Trafford.

The utility man told United Review: "Winning the competition in Moscow [in 2008] was an amazing feeling and getting back to the final was something we were determined to repeat.

"We managed to do that, but failed at the final hurdle so the motivation is there to go one step further this time. And with the squad we have we’re definitely capable of challenging again."

O'Shea, who made his 350th Reds appearance against Stoke, has seen enough of Wednesday's free-scoring opponents to know they will be no pushovers.
