Peter Crouch names toughest defender he faced during his career


Former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur striker, Peter Crouch, has named Chelsea legend John Terry as the toughest defender he ever faced during his career as a professional footballer.

The former England international played against several top defenders during his playing days but opted to singled out Terry.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Crouch told the Hawksbee & Jacobs Show:

“I always remember getting schooled by Tony Adams in one of my first games.

“I was at QPR. It was a cup game, it wasn’t Premier League. I remember Tony Adams and I think it would have been Steve Bould, maybe.

“I think over the years, Sol Campbell gave me a big test because he is so physically strong.

“But John Terry was probably the best of the bunch, I think.”
