Fit-again Rio Ferdinand is ready for another Champions League final. After last year’s thrilling showpiece which went all the way to penalties you’d think he wants a more comfortable win this time – but this is not the case.

‘I just want to win. I don’t care how the game goes. It would be nice if it was a great game with loads of skill and loads of goals for us.

‘But people don’t remember it for being a great final. People only remember the winners.’


True enough. He also admitted he’s simply a bad loser so he doesn’t want to experience the pain of defeat in a European Cup final. We all hope you won’t have to, Rio.
