Inter Milan defender Skriniar: Ramos better than Van Dijk

Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar insists Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos is the best in the world.

Skriniar rates Ramos as a superior defender to Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk.

Skriniar said, "The best defenders in the world are Sergio Ramos, who is a real leader. Then I'd say Virgil van Dijk for what he's done over the last two-three years, plus Kalidou Koulibaly, even if he isn't having the best time at the moment."

Of the players he wished he had played with, he added: “Ronaldo Il Fenomeno, because he was my favourite player when I was a kid. I've had some tough forwards to mark, certainly Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who are the best in the world right now. Kylian Mbappé and Zlatan Ibrahimovic were also difficult, the Milan Derby was my first time against Zlatan."
