Reminiscing Over the Best Centre-Back Partnerships

When Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand were in the middle of Manchester United’s defence, there was no way through.

Tottenham’s defence are a rare celebration but where have all the centre-back partnerships gone? Here’s a reminder of some of the best we’ve had. Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic The …
