Man in the middle: Massimo Busacca

Tomorrow's referee Massimo Busacca, 41, is well known to Manchester United, having taken charge of last season's Champions League final in Rome when they were outclassed by Barcelona.

A year before, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson laid into the Swiss official for failing to award a penalty in the semI-final against Barcelona that 'the world and his wife' would have given.

Busacca has suffered an eventful few months since last coming face to face with United.

He was suspended for three matches in September after showing the middle finger to Young Boys Bern fans and later faced bizarre claims that he urinated on the pitch in the middle of a match in Qatar.

Fingers crossed: Paul Scholes and co will hope Busacca is more generous to United than in their Cham[ions League semi-final with Barcelona in 2008
