FC Barcelona completed one of the best games in living memory over the past decade. The Catalans won the Champions League in 2011 in the midst of the club's best period, something that even allowed Busquets to leave some 'darts' for his rivals that night

Rio Ferdinand took advantage of his presence in the podcast 'Stick to Football' to remember the ridiculous that felt in his last final of Champions League, the one who contested in 2011 in front of the FC Barcelona. In that party, his Manchester United arrived to the big appointment with spirits to take the revancha in front of the team of Pep Guardiola, one of the best of the history of the football, that already had surpassed them in the season 2008/09.

But two years afterwards the English only carried a new disappointment, now with Wembley like stage. And it is that the superiority culé was so evident in that 3-1 that even allowed the hesitate of Sergio Busquets. The mediocentro took advantage of a break of the party to do that Ferdinand was near of the laugh in full lawn when relating how Busi the 'attacked' by his little possession of balloon.

The Barça left in evidence his superiority in front of a big United

Beside excompañeros of the 'network devils', Ferdinand related that "I collected the balloon in a small conflict with Busquets. It was missing little and they were winning. I removed him the balloon, the referee pitó and Busquets said me: "You, Vidic, 'boom, boom boom'", remembered the English, in a gesture that the exdefensa understood like an indictment of "long balloon, long balloon, long balloon", explained between laughs.

The exjugador ensured also that even in that moment was about to reir of the shame, knowing that Busquets had a lot of reason. "Almost I laughed me. I felt me so despised. Never I felt me so embarrassed in the field". "After the party remained me to see them heave the trophy. We were I, Giggs, Scholes... We thought: 'we Go out of this field, damned was, has given us shame'", completed, recognising that even they covered the face not to show like this in front of the cameras.
