Manchester City and Real Madrid are set to face off in the Champions League, with pundit Rio Ferdinand suggesting that City’s Rodri is better than Real Madrid’s Toni Kroos. Ferdinand, a former player who has won the Champions League, highlighted Rodri as the best central defensive midfielder in the world currently. City signed Rodri in 2019 for £62m, and he has been instrumental for the team, with impressive passing accuracy and defensive statistics.

Despite playing more minutes in the Premier League this season, Rodri has outperformed Kroos in passing accuracy, shot-creating actions, goal-creating actions, and dribblers tackled percentage. This highlights Rodri’s effectiveness on and off the ball compared to the highly paid Real Madrid star. Ferdinand’s praise for Rodri as the best defensive midfielder in the world is backed up by statistics that show his impact on the pitch for Manchester City.

Ferdinand’s endorsement of Rodri’s abilities adds anticipation to the Champions League clash between Manchester City and Real Madrid. As a former player who understands the demands of the competition, Ferdinand’s assessment that Rodri is better than Kroos highlights the quality that City possess in their squad. It remains to be seen how Rodri and Kroos will perform in the upcoming Champions League match, but the debate over their abilities adds an exciting dimension to the game.
