Rio Ferdinand, a former player for Manchester United, has said that Kevin de Bruyne, a midfielder for Manchester City, is the best ball-crosser in the world.
Ferdinand claims that when it comes to crossing the ball, De Bruyne is most similar to former Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder David Beckham.
Ferdinand also asserted that Beckham was competent enough to play any position, not just the wings, like De Bruyne or Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard when speaking on his VIBE with FIVE YouTube Channel.
Ferdinand said, “Undoubtedly the best crosser of the ball I have ever seen. If you have got to compare anyone in today’s game, it is De Bruyne.
“I would say, is the closest thing to Becks. Becks could play that position.
“He could either play the holding midfielder in today’s game or the number 8/10 that plays in that area, like Kevin de Bruyne or Odegaard if we are talking of the Premier League at the moment.”
Beckham played 724 games for teams like Manchester United, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain, scoring 127 goals and dishing out 225 assists.
