James Maddison says Man Utd star is ‘best in the world’ after starring in FA Cup win vs Brighton and Ferdinand agrees


LEICESTER midfielder James Maddison has heaped praise on Manchester United full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka following his performance in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final.

Wan-Bissaka, 25, played 101 minutes under the Wembley arch as United secured a 6-7 win over Brighton on penalties following a 0-0 draw.

And his impressive performance prompted huge praise from both fans and fellow players, including Leicester star Maddison.

The 26-year-old England international tweeted: “AWB is ridiculously good at one-v-one defending. Probably the best in the world bar none.

“So many wingers run out of ideas when playing directly against him.”

Man Utd legend Rio Ferdinand appeared to agree as he applauded Wan-Bissaka for his ability to “put the shackles” on Brighton winger Kaoru Mitoma.

When speaking on his FIVE YouTube channel after the semi-final, he said: “I think Wan-Bissaka for me [was the stand-out player].

“Mitoma has been the find of the season for me, he has given every team they have played against huge problems.

“And to be fair to Wan-Bissaka, he put the shackles on him. And we all know how good defensively one vs one Wan-Bissaka is and today he proved again he can handle top class players in good form.

“When it is me against you, he is as good as anyone out there.”
