Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has named Sergio Aguero as the best number 9 in the world.
The legendary centre-back admitted that Aguero was tougher to play against than Luis Suarez.
Ferdinand believes that Aguero’s ability to score with both feet gives him edge over Suarez.
“For me now, at the moment, when he’s fit, Augero’s the best No.9 in terms of playing against, he’s a nightmare,” Ferdinand said.
“Because he’s small, stocky, strong, quick as well and will go both ways. He’ll go left and shoot with his left, or go right and shoot.
“Normally, like [Luis] Suarez, I’ll push him on his left all day long and say ‘go on’, because I know he’s going to cut back on his right.
“But with someone like Aguero, he’ll take that left and push it, and it’s hard to get back a yard, especially against someone so quick in the box, and he bangs it with both feet, so for me he was the hardest to play against for a long time.”
