Carragher snubs Van Dijk, Maguire, names best defender in Premier League



Carragher snubs Van Dijk Maguire names best defender in Premier League

Former Liverpool captain, Jamie Carragher, has hailed Manchester City’s Ruben Dias as the best defender in the Premier League.

Carragher rated Dias above Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk.

The 23-year-old has transformed City’s defence since he joined from Benfica for £64million last summer.

With Pep Guardiola’s men just one victory away from the Premier League title, Dias has been one of their best players of the season.

“I love him. I think he’s been the best player in the Premier League this season, I really do believe that.

“I think he’s had a huge effect on Manchester City. Even when he speaks and you watch him play you can’t believe he’s 23.

:John Stones next to him is 27-28 and you feel like it’s the other way around with John Stones and that’s no disrespect to John Stones,” he told CBS Sports.

Comparing Dias and Van Dijk, Carragher admitted the Dutchman had better “physical attributes”, while Dias had to work harder to ensure he stays ahead of attackers and concentrates in the big moments.
