Man Utd hero Ferdinand: Vidic vs Van Dijk?

Manchester United hero Rio Ferdinand rates former teammate Nemanja Vidic ahead of Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk.

Ferdinand made the claim in a social media Q&A.

“Prime Van Dijk or prime Vidic? Ooooh, good question!

“I've got to go with Vidic because he was my partner, man. He was my partner. He covered my back and I covered his. That was it.

“'I love Van Dijk, don't get me wrong. I love him. Best defender in the world now, definitely.

“I'd love to have seen him play in our time, seen what he was about. That would have been interesting. But top player."
