Ferdinand discloses Busquets’ remarks following Manchester United’s loss to Barcelona

Posted by

Rio Ferdinand, a legend at Manchester United, recently discussed an incident that occurred in the 2011 UEFA Champions League final between Barcelona and Sergio Busquets.

At Wembley, Barça dominated the encounter and defeated United, 3-1.

During the game, Ferdinand said he had a conversation with Busquets, who told him and Nemanja Vidic, his defensive partner, that they like playing long balls.

As a result, Ferdinand wanted nothing more than to go off the field in shame.

Still, the ex-England international couldn’t deny that Barcelona were the superior team on that particular day.

“I have never felt so embarrassed,” he stated (via Barca Universal). I got the ball during a little altercation with Busquets, as far as I can remember. They were ahead, and there was very little remaining. Sergio yelled out, “You, Vidic, boom, boom boom,” as soon as the referee blew the final whistle and I snatched the ball away from him. “Long ball, long ball, long ball” is an example?

“I near-laughed. It was humiliating. On the field, I had never felt ashamed before. God forbid we stay on this pitch any longer; I yelled that to my teammates. We feel humiliated by them.
