UCL: Rio Ferdinand names Chelsea player he really loves


Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has named Ruben Loftus-Cheek as the Chelsea player he really loves.

Ferdinand described Loftus-Cheek as a fantastic specimen, adding that the midfielder is like Manchester City legend, Yaya Toure.

The former England international also said that Loftus-Cheek could intimidate players.

Loftus-Cheek was impressive for Chelsea as they defeated Malmo 1-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday night, thanks to Hakim Ziyech’s second-half goal.

“I love him,” BT Sport pundit Ferdinand said of Loftus-Cheek. “I have always known about him from friends at Chelsea.

“He’s a fantastic specimen, first and foremost. I liken him, in full flow, to someone like Yaya Toure.

“He can intimidate players. When he turns and goes full pelt, it’s unplayable at times. As a centre back that’s one of your biggest fears.

“He’s a fantastic talent. He’s as comfortable in the wide areas of a front three as he is in front of the defence. You don’t get that with many players. The strings he has on his bow are beautiful.”
