The Manchester United legend has just picked out two players who he thinks are responsible for Barcelona's Champions League exit. Even die-hard Barca fans have to admit this.

Rio Ferdinand speaking after Juventus’ 3-0 aggregate win against Barcelona paid tribute to the center back duo of Georgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci. The defensive duo along with Alex Sandro and Dani Alves shut out the mighty Barcelona over two legs.

“Yeah (they deserved it). This is a game where the defence came out on top. They were dogged, they showed their experience and desire to defend,” he said.

“They were enjoying it, the confidence they had coming into this game just showed. Chiellini for me has been the star, putting his body on the line,” the former Manchester United man continued.

Him and Bonucci together were tremendous and speaking as a former centre-back, you thrive on clean sheets. To go to the Nou Camp and get a clean sheet against that front three, deserves immense praise,” the former Champions League winner concluded.

Juventus beat Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, on a 3-0 aggregate. Juventus won the game at Juventus Stadium 3-0 and kept the famous Blaugrana from scoring over both legs.
