Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand rates Everton striker Louis Saha as the "perfect No9".

Saha played with Ferdinand at United before joining Everton.

Ferdinand said: "My former United team-mate Louis Saha, now at Everton of course, is my toughest opponent.

"He's quick, he's strong, he's aggressive, he hits the ball cleanly with both feet and he's great in the air.

"If I was building a prototype of a perfect number nine then I'd look to Louis.''
