Rio Ferdinand guarantees that he was surprised by the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo was left out of the batch of candidates for the best player of the season 2021/22 in the Premier League. The former Manchester United defender spoke about the topic on the FIVE podcast and even revealed the name of the nominee that he would, without a second thought, remove to include Ronaldo.
“Is Saka nominated? I wouldn’t put him over Ronaldo. Ronaldo should be up front with three or four nominees. He’s going to feel disrespected, but that’s the kind of thing that feeds him. He’s going to think: ‘Is Saka nominated? How dare they?’ And if we go by numbers he thinks: ‘I’ve scored more goals than anyone on the list, apart from Salah,'” said Ferdinand.
