Everton: Fans slam Rio Ferdinand on his analysis of Mason Holgate and Michael Keane

Everton: Fans slam Rio Ferdinand on his analysis of Mason Holgate and Michael Keane - Everton News

Loads of Everton fans have been slamming former Manchester United and England legend now pundit Rio Ferdinand after he spoke exclusively to the Merseyside club’s official website about the English central defenders Mason Holgate and Michael Keane.

As per his interview, Ferdinand has backed the duo to flourish at Goodsion Park under manager Carlo Ancelotti, as he provided an insightful analysis of the defensive pair’s attributes. However, it seems as if several members of the Toffees faithful did not agree with his comments.

Who is the better centre-half at Everton?

Holgate

Holgate

Keane

Keane

Holgate has featured in 22 games in the Premier League so far in the 2019/20 season, but the team have only kept three clean sheets whilst the 23-year old has been in the side, whilst he also loses possession 7.7 times per game, according to Sofascore.

On the other hand, Keane has played in the same number of matches as his centre-back partner in the top flight so far in this campaign, but the 27-year old actually loses the ball on average more times than Holgate and the team have only kept one more clean sheet with him in the side (via the website).

In what year did Leighton Baines make his senior Everton debut?

These Blues supporters slammed the analysis on Twitter, perhaps influenced by these kinds of stats:

The way @rioferdy5 talked up Keane prior to his arrival is now an embarrassment to him and his assessment of players. Demonstrates he cannot be an agent and objective/impartial pundit.
