Koeman: De Ligt Will Be World Best Centre Back

Netherlands coach, Ronald Koeman believes Ajax defender, Matthijs De Ligt Will be the best centre back in the world, in the next two years.

The 19-year-old is already linked with a number of top clubs in Europe, with Barcelona eyeing a deal for the defender.

Koeman believes De Ligt, already a 13-time Netherlands international, is on track to be the world’s best.

“De Ligt and [Frenkie] de Jong are special for various reasons,” he told Catalunya Radio.

“De Ligt is younger, 19, and plays in an important position, as a centre-back.

“He’s the Ajax captain and from their school. That is to say Barca’s school, because it means that he has a lot of technical quality and tactical nous.

“He will be the best centre-back in the world in two years.”
