One of the biggest arguments in football today is who the best in a specific position is. These questions have been asked who the best midfielder in the league, the best striker, the best goalkeeper, best winger, and best defender.
Regarding the defender, Watford striker Troy Deeney has publicly announced Vincent Kompany as the best defender he has ever played against in the career.
While being a captain for the Hornets, Deeney is also a host for TalkSPORT. He has been with the club for 11 seasons being pivotal in helping them gain promotion to the Premier League in 2015 when big win casinos have also placed several odds on.
He went through with Watford for the five seasons they competed in the English Top Flight before they ended up being relegated back to the EFL Championship for the 2020/21 campaign.
The 32-year-old striker has played against top figure defenders like Aymeric Laporte, John Terry, Virgil van Dijk, and Jan Vertonghen in his career in the Premier League, and according to him, none could compare with the Manchester City legend.
On TalkSPORT’s Instagram page, the Watford captain said in a Q&A: “The best defender I’ve played against in my career would be Vincent Kompany.
“I think he’s just a beast of a human; he’s fast, strong, and a great leader.”
Kompany, who moved to the Etihad Stadium in 2008 from Bundesliga club Hamburger SV, spent 11 campaigns with the English club being pivotal as he helped them lift four Premier League titles, two FA Cup, four EFL Cup, and two FA Community Shield titles in 360 appearances for the club. He also contributed 20 goals.
The retired Belgian defender was undoubtedly one of the best defenders in the Premier League in the last ten seasons; he was especially integral for the City’s team for the 2011/12 campaign when he awarded the Premier League player of the season thanks to his performance that helped the club wins the league title.
Kompany has also been included in the team of the season three times; Deeney went up against the Belgian in the 2019 FA Cup final which ended in a 6-0 demolition, which was given prediction odds from several best online casinos, as the Citizens secured the English title.
The Q&A continued as the Watford skipper was asked who he prefers to play with. He named his former teammate and goalkeeper who left the club after the club relegated to the Championship the last season.
He added: “My favorite player to play with is Heurelho Gomes. It’s very strange for a striker saying that about a goalkeeper.
“He’d been my vice-captain for four or five years and is a great human being.
“He had all the experience at Spurs and in the Dutch league as well.”
