Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand names his top three goalkeepers in the world right now



Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has named his top three goalkeepers in world football right now.

Ferdinand has played with and against some quality no.1s throughout his illustrious career, and when naming his current top-three, stuck with a Premier League theme.

According to the former center-back, the best shot-stoppers in the world right now are Edouard Mendy from Chelsea, Ederson from Manchester City and Manchester United’s David de Gea: “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 Mendy, Ederson and, on form right now, De Gea.

“Mendy stands out for me, especially in this last year, he’s been impeccable.”

Of that trio, Ederson and Mendy could very well have a proper claim to be the world’s best keeper right now. The Brazilian is currently on course to clinch his third consecutive Golden Glove award, whilst Mendy was integral in both Chelsea’s Champions League win last year and Senegal’s recent AFCON win.

Rio Ferdinand leaves out Liverpool’s Alisson

Interestingly, Ferdinand would leave out Liverpool and Brazil keeper, Alisson.

Alisson’s impact at Liverpool would be huge and it is probably fair to say that his presence, along with Virgil van Dijk’s, made it possible for Liverpool to win the Champions League and Premier League.

Despite this, Ferdinand opted for David de Gea in his top-three over Alisson. Some Manchester United bias perhaps?

David de Gea has certainly improved of late and was even named the January Premier League Player of the Month:

But to say he is in the top-three keepers in the world right now may be something of a stretch.
