Former Leeds United and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has stated on social networking site Twitter that Swansea City winger Jefferson Montero is good enough to play for a top-four club in the Premier League.
Ferdinand made his comment in the light of Montero’s impressive performance for the Swans against Newcastle United at home in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
The Ecuador international was the star of the show at the Liberty Stadium, as the Welsh outfit won the encounter 2-0.
The former Villarreal attacker was a menace to the Newcastle defenders during the 77 minutes he was on the pitch.
Montero took one shot, had a pass accuracy of 78%, created four chances, put in five crosses, attempted 11 dribbles, and made one interception and two blocks.
Former West Ham United and Queens Park Rangers centre-back Ferdinand was following the game, and he was impressed with Montero’s display.
If I'm a manager at a top 4 team I take Montero.....real quick!!— Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) August 15, 2015
