Manchester United legend, Nemanja Vidic, has named his favourite defenders currently playing in the Premier League.

Vidic forged a formidable partnership with Rio Ferdinand during his time at Old Trafford.

And the Serb has been impressed with some of the centre-backs in the topflight.

Speaking to The Times, Vidic said: “The best defenders now? I like talking about the young ones.

“Micky van de Ven [at Tottenham Hotspur]. He’s fast, strong and good in the air, and has the capabilities to really improve.

“The two from Arsenal [William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes] are doing well. Watching them, I feel they like defending and want the clean sheet. I like the mentality they show. And they are a partnership. That is important.”
