Franco Baresi, mythical defender of Milan, praised the meringue captain for his career and also had words for Virgil Van Dijk.

Franco Baresi He was one of the best defenders in history. Captain and leader of the Milan who won everything in the late eighties and early nineties, was a centerpiece in the old way, all personality, placement and anticipation, whose collective sense forever revolutionized the way of defending. And his opinion takes relevance when talking about the defenders who most impressed him.

“Thinking about defenders, it is not easy to choose one. I think that for many years Sergio Ramos was one of the best for his record and for his extraordinary career. He is still an important player for Real Madrid even though he is no longer so young “the Italian expressed to Goal.

Ramos, however, is not the only centerpiece that catches Baresi’s attention, since he also had words of praise for Virgil Van Dijk. “After Ramos is Van Dijk. He is a very important figure for Liverpool because of his caliber, his personality and the confidence he transmits to the team after so many years.”
