Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi revealed his “defense idol.”
In an interview with Goal.com, Mustafi received a question asking who his defense role-model is. His answer was not Tony Adams, not Martin Keown, but Manchester United FC legend Rio Ferdinand.
Mustafi always liked watching players like Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldinho but after he became a defender, Ferdinand was his favorite player to watch. He praised Ferdinand as a “perfect defender” equipped with all the defensive qualities.
