“Maybe people say you’re biased” – Rio Ferdinand named the 3 best goalkeepers in the world right now

Manchester United Legendary Rio Ferdinand named three goalkeepers he considers the best in the world in a recent issue of his Five Digital magazine.

Ferdinand claimed that Chelsea’s Edouard MendyManchester United’s David de Gea and Ederson of Manchester City are the 3 best goalkeepers in the world at the moment.

Ferdinand said:

“If I were to pick one goalkeeper right now in the world, I think my top three would be – and maybe people say you’re biased because of the Premier League – but it would be Mendy, Ederson and form right now. De Gea. Mendy stands out to me, especially in the last year, he’s just perfect.”

Mendy has been in exceptional form for Chelsea this campaign despite a bit of a hiccup early in the season. He has quickly established himself as Chelsea’s No 1 since joining in September 2020 and recently won the AFCON with Senegal.

Meanwhile, de Gea has been brilliant for Manchester United and has returned to his best form after a poor run last season.

Ultimately, Ederson’s consistent brilliance has helped Manchester City dominate the Premier League title race to date. The Brazilian has kept 12 clean sheets so far this season, the highest in the league.

Of course, Manchester United are far from being where Rio Ferdinand or any of the club’s fans would want them. The season is expected to end with the team vying for titles with most positions having enough depth.

However, despite Manchester United’s abundance of talent, their goalkeeping unit has by far looked the most stable.

Dean Henderson overtook David de Gea to become No 1 in the Premier League at the end of last season.

However, de Gea’s recent resurgence has proven that the 31-year-old has plenty of fuel left in his tank. The Spaniard made many big mistakes last season but has returned to his best this campaign. De Gea is easily the best saver in the world when he’s at his best.

His physical presence is often criticized the most, though he has also made his fair share of mistakes. De Gea has saved Manchester United numerous times during this campaign and has reclaimed his rightful No 1 spot at the club.

His steady form even led Henderson to look for a loan move in January which ultimately failed to materialize.
