According to Daily Star, former Chelsea players Jose Bosingwa and Ryan Bertrand are among the worst players to win a Champions League final.

On Bosingwa, Daily Star stated: “When Bosingwa won his first Champions League title with Porto in 2004, he was still a young prospect with plenty of time to see if he’d justify his potential.

“When he made it two, playing the full 120 minutes for Chelsea against Bayern, he’d shown us exactly how high his ceiling was.

“The Portugal international only started the game due to a number of Blues players missing out through injury and suspension, and his performances the following year at QPR gave a fairer representation of his defensive level.”

On Bertrand, Daily Star stated: “Bosingwa had at least tasted more action than Bertrand that season, but the academy product was thrown in as a gamble by Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo.

“It was Bertrand’s first ever Champions League appearance, and while he gave a good account of himself in Munich he did not kick on and become a European regular.

“Bertrand isn’t the worst player out there, and has been solid enough at Southampton, but he deserves his spot here.”
