Chelsea Star Who Man Utd Legend Rio Ferdinand Has Named As The Best Center Back In The EPL

Well, the English Premier League is arguably the most competitive football league in the world. However, Chelsea are proving that they are one of the best teams in Europe. Since Thomas Tuchel took over as the manager of Chelsea, the club has been performing so good. According to most football pundits, Chelsea is currently the best team in Europe especially at defending.

Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has praised Thomas Tuchel attributing Chelsea's performance to him. Furthermore, he has named one of the Chelsea defenders as the best center back in the Premier League right now. According to Rio Ferdinand, Antonio Rudiger is currently the best center back in the English Premier League since Thomas Tuchel took over at Chelsea.

While speaking to Vibe with Five YouTube channel, Rio Ferdinand said:

"Since Tuchel took over, I think Rudiger has become the best center back in the Premier League. I think him and Dias would have been close but the effect he has had on his team has been immense.

Under Frank Lampard, it was evident that he wasn't Frank's cup of tea. He didn't really like him. There were rumours that they were trying to put him in the market to be sold.

In Germany, he's always been highly thought of. But when the manager doesn't rate you and you can feel that. I don't care who you are, your confidence takes a beating and it's hard to perform at that level."
