Former English and Manchester United center-back, Rio Ferdinand, has named Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk as the best center-back in the world.



Ferdinand made this known sequel to the Premier League 3-2 defeat Liverpool suffered against West Ham over the weekend.

Speaking on his FIVE YouTube channel, Ferdinand said, “It’s who stands the length of time as well, if you could do it over a period of time.

“There is no doubt in my mind Virgil’s best year would stack up against most centre-backs, but you don’t get judged on that best year, you get judged over that period of time. Cleaning Services In Nigeria

“I think you have got to think you are the guy, you have got to think you are the best… and I think Virgil, he’s the best centre-back in the world.

“Yes, there is going to be teething problems, that is going to happen because he’s been out for so long and he’s just getting his feet wet again, but I still believe if there is a game right now today and I need a centre back, my first centre back on the list would be him.”
