Virgil Van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk praised his fellow defender after the Reds’ 6-0 thrashing of Leeds.

 

A little about the topic

The Dutch footballer has admitted that he wishes he had the same quality as Matip in terms of dribbling ability. Liverpool stormed a 6-0 victory over Leeds at Anfield midweek to move within three points of Man City at the top of the PL table. Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip both managed to score, with the former pattern of praise from their defensive partner after finally getting the award for his mazy runs into the final third.

 

What did Virgil van Dijk say?

Joel paired with Salah before producing a neat finish to put Liverpool 2-0 on the night and Virgil admitted to being jealous of his ball-carrying skills. Virgil van Dijk said that’s a big quality of him – wish he had that quality at times!. Matip just can go without fear at all and hope for the best a bit! But Matip has such quality. That’s a big strength of it and obviously it’s useful because it pulls other players out of their position and today obviously the space was there to make that run and finish it. Van Dijk told him before the game he felt it was coming because he had an assist for Jota and Virgil said the goal was next! so Virgil is obviously very happy for him.

Insisted on whether supporters are seeing the best of Joel now that he is injury-free, Virgil added that he thinks, too, that he is mentally in a good place. According to Virgil van Dijk, he thinks the four of them are because they can’t forget Gomez, who is obviously not even in the lineup at the moment, but the four of them hold each other as sharply as possible. They need everyone and it’s obviously very good to see him fit, he plays at a high level and whether Virgil plays with him, Konate or Gomez, it’s always good to be there together and work hard.
