EPL: Kompany names best defender in Premier League history1 min read


Former Manchester City captain, Vincent Kompany, has named Virgil van Dijk as the best centre-back he’s seen in the Premier League, ahead of the likes of John Terry and Rio Ferdinand.

Van Dijk joined Liverpool from Southampton in January 2018, becoming the world’s most expensive defender at the time.

The Dutchman, has since helped establish the Reds backline as one of the best in the world, helping guide the team to a Champions League final win over Tottenham in June.

“I would bring it back to Virgil van Dijk, he’s not been on the scene as long as Terry, Ferdinand who have been around for a long time but the signs he’s shown in the last few years.

“He’s shown if he had been around longer he’d have been at the top for a long time. The Liverpool before Van Dijk and after are a completely different setup. I’ll give him that one,” Kompany told the media ahead of his testimonial.
