Virgil van Dijk: A Liverpool legend in the making

  • Published on Nov 12, 2019
  • Virgil van Dijk's route to the top has been far from straightforward but the Dutch defender is now a Champions League winner, Ballon d'Or nominee and ranked alongside legends of the game Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. In this exclusive interview, Goal's Liverpool correspondent Neil Jones talks to him about his road to success and congratulates him on winning the Goal 50 in 2019.

    Start off saying that Van Dijk is brilliant, great player and really nice bloke, very down to earth but it is curious that he had one season at Celtic (and a few comments from players + manager) BUT played 3 years at Southampton and only an ex-Southampton player and the National team coach make comments - why not the likes of James Ward-Prowse ? - I guess the Southampton owners said "no comment" when asked to contribute??

    Virgil van Dijk is the only player not passed by his opponent in 28 official matches. One of the most difficult records to be repeated. his overall performance showed he was entitled to the title of the world's most expensive stopper.

    I was tearing up. How did he not cry? Solid and professional as you like, that's Virgil Van Dijk. Well done son, keep it up. Every penny well spent. The personality is sometimes just as important as the ability. I agree as an ex-soldier and ex-footballer. To make a great team, you have to have coherence. He brings it!!!

    As a Dutch Liverpool fan, me and my brother predicted he'd be the next Liverpool signing to come from Southampton the day he signed for them.
    Followed his career since he was at Groningen. To think PSV and Ajax didn't think he was good enough, Feyenoord were out of money. Brilliant to see him prove them wrong.

    What I love about VVD is the organisation. Liverpool are not soft or disjointed anymore at the back due to him. I'd say they will reach 95/96 points this season. City will drop at least 7 points in the rest of the season.

    He's a centre-half,
    He's a number four,
    Watch him defend,
    And we watch him score,
    He'll pass the ball,
    Calm as you like,
    He's Virgil van Dijk,
    He's Virgil van Dijk…

    Why is ronaldo in the conversation? He had a so so year. Sterling has done more in the last year than him. VVD gets my vote.
