Rio Ferdinand will be remembered as one of the best defenders ever to play the game.

The former West Ham centre-back formed a sensational partnership with Nemanja Vidic that is right up there with any defending double act from the last 20 years.

One of the best defender in his day, Rio now works as a pundit for BT Sport

So when he reveals who the current best centre-back in the Premier League is, you sit up and listen!

Check out his comments below:

We reckon Rio might be right, Toby Alderweireld has been a class act since he arrived at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham really missed him in the Champions League this week.

Mauricio Pochettino will want him back as soon as possible to give Spurs the best chance of qualifying for the next round after the group stage.

Without him they don’t look like winning anything!
