Manchester United man Rio Ferdinand has spoken out on Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk. Van Dijk missed most of the 2020/21 season due to a serious injury.

After the previous season, the Reds defender has made his return. During this season, he has made 14 appearances.

“I think Virgil, he’s the best centre-back in the world. Yes there’s going to be teething problems but I still believe if there’s a game right now today and I need a centre back, my first centre back on the list would be him,” Ferdinand said on Rio Ferdinand Presents FIVE youtube channel.

“It’s who stands the length of time as well, if you could do it over a period of time. There’s 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.”
