West Ham United star Jack Wilshere is the best defensive midfielder in the world, surpassing Liverpool’s Fabinho, the

23-year-old’s impressive form. Again during the draw game Olympique Lyon 1-1 Europa League quarter-final first match last night. His team had to play only 10 players throughout the second half

. Wilshere, who watched the game, tweeted: “Tell me who is the better defensive midfielder than Declan Rice at the moment? I really can’t figure out who can do what Deck can do.”

When a fan commented on Fabinho that he was better, Wilshere replied: “It doesn’t have what Deck has. can do everything “

Rice enjoyed an excellent Euro 2020 as England reached the final and has continued that form into a memorable campaign for West Ham, who are pushing for a top four finish in the Premier League and European glory.

Later, the former England midfielder wrote: ‘[Sergio] Busquets is the only one 3 or 4 years ago. And remember he played in a team that dominated possession in every game.

Busquets was the only one three or four years ago, but you have to remember that he plays in a team that has full possession of the ball every game.”

“Deck’s job is harder than in this team. He can play for every team in Europe. this is true I hope it’s Arsenal.”
