RIO FERDINAND has revealed his crazy celebrations after Manchester United’s 2008 Champions League win.
A penalty shootout victory over Chelsea secured the trophy, which the defender lifted with Ryan Giggs having captained the Red Devils in Moscow.
After the final whistle, Ferdinand went on a magnificent bender that, as he revealed on BT Sport, left him showering in his SUIT.
The 41-year-old admitted: “I don’t remember it, it was that good.
“After the Champions League final in Moscow, it was the most I’ve ever consumed.
“I went toe to toe with a fan who got into the party and I was worse for wear the next morning.
“I ended up showering in my full suit and almost missed the flight home. When you win, you get away with it.”
However, that win was followed up by final defeats at the hands of Barcelona in 2009 and 2011.
These guys won’t enjoy their holidays this year. I’ve been there.
And Ferdinand talked of how Paris Saint-Germain’s players will struggle to forget Sunday night’s defeat.
Kingsley Coman’s second-half header turned out to be the only goal after several missed chances for PSG early on, leaving Neymar in tears at the final whistle.
Ferdinand noted: “These guys won’t enjoy their holidays this year. I’ve been there.
“You feel like you were that close, you were in the final.
“You’ll go on a holiday and you’ll be just enjoying yourself and starting to get into the groove… and bang, you’re taken back to this moment and that feeling.
“It’s terrible and it takes a while to get rid of it.”
