Dunne Stones can become worldclass

first_imgFormer Manchester City defender Richard Dunne believes John Stones as the potential within him to become one of the world’s greatest centre-backsFollowing his £47.5m from Everton in 2016, Stones has made 95 appearances for City with manager Pep Guardiola praising his versatility this season which has enabled him to play in multiple positions.Stones, who is regarded as a ball-playing central defender, has been compared to the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Jerome Boateng and Gerard Pique.And Dunne has no doubts that Stones will one day reach the same kind level that will justify the comparisons with these world-class defenders.“I think he has the potential [to be world-class],” said Dunne on the club website.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“When he’s playing with England, they’re helping him by building a side around him.“He was unfairly criticised when he first came because he was young and he was bound to make mistakes. It takes time to fit into what Pep wants from him.“But with the benefit of a couple of years he has improved and will continue to improve and there’s no reason why he can’t be one of the best centre-halves in the world.”City will be back in action away to Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Sunday.last_img
