UCL: Yobo Delighted With Barcelona's Professional Display In Win Against Manchester United
Former Nigeria international, Joseph Yobo has hailed Barcelona's mental strength in Wednesday's 1-0 UEFA Champions League victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford.

United defender Luke Shaw inadvertently diverted into his own net from a Luis Suarez's header in the first half to leave the Red Devils with the slim deficit ahead of next week's return leg.

Speaking as a co-analyst on SuperSport alongside ex-Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke, the former Everton star lauded the efforts of the Catalans in seeing out the game and boosting their chances of coming out top in the tie.

"They didn't play their best game tonight but we saw a Barcelona side that was very professional", Yobo said in his post-match analysis.

"They came here needing a result from it, and they just stuck their heads into it and got that win. It's a good one for them to take back home.

"They looked a bit tired in the second period but credit to them, they remained mentally outstanding."

Yobo, 38, made seven appearances in the qualifying rounds of the Champions League during his playing days.
