Sutton says England midfielder is better than Kalvin Phillips

Posted by

Chris Sutton has claimed he would target Declan Rice over Kalvin Phillips this summer.

Rice and Phillips have been subject to a vast amount of interest this summer, as the two England international’s have been performing exceptionally for both club and country.

Sutton has now claimed if he was a managed, he would be targeting Rice over Phillips this summer.

“I would take Rice. I think Rice is ahead of Phillips, at this moment in time. I think most people across the country would say that as well,” said Sutton, speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live Sport.

It may be a popular opinion amongst football fans, but with Manchester City opting to pursue a move for Phillips ahead of Rice, it appears Pep Guardiola either doesn’t agree with Sutton, or he’s exploring a cheaper option.

  1. Both have differing output, can’t argue Rice is rugged battling ram of a talented midfielder, I believe Pep want hone and refine his skillset, I believe having played under Bielsa, Pep would turn him into a box-to-box solid passer cum creator for the Citizens

  2. Phillips needs a manager who can take him forward to next level like marcelo did I not sure he can do that with our new coaching staff so maybe to move forward he needs be at man City or Liverpool and we bring up another promising talent from our very good under 23 team
