Rio Ferdinand, the celebrated Manchester United icon, recently compared Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka and Manchester City’s Jeremy Doku, sharing his preference for watching Doku in action despite acknowledging Saka’s exceptional skills.
Ferdinand highlighted Saka’s remarkable abilities but expressed a greater inclination toward observing Doku on the field. Both players have showcased outstanding performances for their respective clubs throughout the current season.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Ferdinand weighed in on their form, favoring Doku due to his current momentum. He noted, “In terms of current form, Doku stands out. He’s creating opportunities and slicing through defenses. Although Saka had a quieter game against Brentford recently, the significant moments, including a goal and a VAR-disallowed goal, originated from his contributions.”
Ferdinand praised Saka’s adaptability, mentioning how he doesn’t solely rely on dribbling past opponents anymore. Instead, he efficiently utilizes space and delivers precise passes. Recognizing Saka’s top-tier performance, Ferdinand added, “Saka’s at the pinnacle of his game.”
However, Ferdinand’s admiration leaned more toward Doku, emphasizing his preference to watch the Manchester City winger over any other in the league presently.
