Pundit praises ‘brilliant’ Tottenham target for his performances in Euro 2024

By Mehdi Gokal -

Former Premier League star Rio Ferdinand has praised Crystal Palace defender Marc Guehi, who has been linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, as England’s standout defender at Euro 2024.

The 23-year-old Guehi, whose contract with Crystal Palace extends until June 2026, has emerged as a key player for both his club and country.

His impressive performances have sparked interest from several top clubs, including Tottenham.

Guehi’s standout moment came during England’s 1-0 victory over Serbia in their opening group game.

He completed 51 out of 53 passes, boasting a 96% accuracy rate. Additionally, he won all his ground duels, made four recoveries, and contributed two clearances, showcasing his defensive prowess.

His solid form continued in England’s 1-1 draw against Denmark, despite the team’s overall uninspiring performance. Guehi’s consistency at the back has not gone unnoticed.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Ferdinand highlighted Guehi’s impact at the tournament, stating:

“There’s all these players that we still don’t know if they’re going to be good enough, but they’re here.”

“Even Guehi, Guehi’s been brilliant, been our best defender, but we didn’t know really, did we, what he was going to be like because he doesn’t get a good amount of time to play and have minutes.”

Guehi’s international success mirrors his strong showing last season with Crystal Palace.

Despite a knee injury that sidelined him for nearly three months, he made 25 Premier League appearances, starting 23 of those games and even captaining the team in several matches.

His leadership and defensive skills have made him a valuable asset to Palace.

With Tottenham reportedly interested in securing Guehi’s services, his future remains a topic of significant speculation.

However, the defender is currently focusing on England’s Euro 2024 campaign in Germany and will delay any decisions about his club future until after the tournament.
