EPL: He has everything – Rio Ferdinand picks Chelsea star as young player of the season


Manchester United legend, Rio Ferdinand, has picked Chelsea star, Reece James, as his Premier League young best player of the 2021/22 season.

Ferdinand said James, 22, has everything as a footballer, adding that the England defender is so versatile.

“I’m going to go Reece James [for Premier League young player of the season]. I just think the importance that he has in this team when he doesn’t play in that team now they miss him massively,” Ferdinand said in his latest show of the Vibe with Five podcast.

“He has a massive impact in that team [Chelsea]. I watched him at Old Trafford the other day… he was treating some Man United players like boys. That is how good he is, how comfortable he looks now.

“I have seen him on loan at Wigan playing centre-back, playing in midfield. He’s so versatile. His passing range is off the charts. Just his all-round general play, the composure, the physicality, his defending one-v-one. I think he’s got everything.”
