Speaking on his official YouTube podcast, Rio Ferdinand said: “If I was picking a goalkeeper right now in the world…
“I think my top three keepers would be – and maybe people say you’re biased because of the Premier League – but it would be Edouard Mendy, Ederson, and on form right now David De Gea.
“Mendy stands out for me, especially in this last year, he’s been impeccable.”
Interestingly enough, Ferdinand has conveniently overlooked Liverpool’s shot-stopper Alisson Becker despite his supposed ‘Premier League bias’.
De Gea has reestablished himself as Manchester United’s first-choice goalkeeper this season and the Red Devils owe their league position to the Spaniard.
