Ukrainian defender of the London “Arsenal” Oleksandr Zinchenko expressed his opinion about the best defensive midfielders of the English Premier League.
“Most underrated player in the Premier League? I think it’s Thomas Party.
Casemiro? Can’t say anything bad about Casemiro. He is certainly a world class player – five Champions League trophies speak for themselves. But if you want me to pick just one, it’ll be Thomas.
I had a discussion in my head about who is actually the best defensive midfielder I have ever played with. I chose between Fernandinho, Parti and Rodri. This is not an easy task. I have seen Fernandinho since childhood, when I was at the Shakhtar academy, he helped me a lot, he was like an older brother to me, but Thomas… I don’t even know…
Rodri fits perfectly into the City system. If you remove him from the roster, it will already be a completely different team, because he is the main detail in it. I believe that this position is the most difficult to play, and Rodri is perfect for her,” Zinchenko said.
Earlier it was reported that London’s Arsenal plans to sell six players before the transfer window closes.
