Virgil Van Dijk

Former eagle boss Neil Warnock dismissed Virgil van Dijk, who went on to become a standout player at the Saints and then Liverpool.

 

What did Neil say about Virgil van Dijk?

Ex-Chief Cristal revealed he had a chance to sign Dutch footballer Virgil van Dijk for as little as £5m ahead of his Saints move – but turned down the opportunity. The Dutch player continued to shine at Southampton and then Liverpool, where he developed into one of the best defenders in the world. But according to Warnock, concerns about the Dutchman’s pace led him to turn the player down.

Neil said that the one who ran away from him was Virgil van Dijk. According to Neil Warnock, he was offered it when he was at Crystal Palace for £5 million. But his Boy Scouts commander said he was too slow and he ended up in Southampton instead! Warnock says it’s a shame because anything he can lack in pace he makes up for 10x in his ability to read a game.

 

Warnock talks about Gareth Southgate

Former Crystal Palace boss Neil Warnock also denounced Southgate’s England teams who are reeling after relegating to a historic 4-0 home defeat to Hungary in the UEFA Nations League. Neil added that he doesn’t think there was anyone better than Gareth Southgate, but the problem is, he’s got it, he’s been such a success.

When Neil first started in football, experienced manager Murphy told him the problem with success is fans always want more. According to Neil Warnock, Southgate should take several weeks off to recharge its batteries. These results, average at the start of the next camp people, will be apprehensive. Warnock doesn’t think they can win as England manager. The former English football manager thinks it’s a terrible job. It’s impossible to please everyone. Warnock thinks it’s a hopeless situation.
