The former Manchester United and England national football team believes that the current Red Devils captain does not have the qualifications to be in the Three Lions starting line-up and should be dropped behind his rivals from Manchester City and Everton.
Ferdinand has told the FIVE YouTube channel about who should play in the England national team defense: “
On formMichael Keane
“There wouldn’t be a person in the country who is watching Premier League games week-in-week-out who would tell youMaguire
is more consistent than Michael Keane at the moment. Not a chance.
“Michael Keane has been playing at Everton consistently as the centre-back there, so right now I’d say Michael Keane and John Stones. Who else is going to be there? Who else can you pick?
“Stones has just come back to form, so he’s in contention again, and he’s got the experience above others, which is a plus for him. So I think at the moment it is really who plays with Stones.
“And in terms of form, Maguire seems to not be in great form at the moment. So if you’re looking for another, Michael Keane I would say is the next in line for me. If you’re going on form, you don’t pick [Maguire].”
