Jose Mourinho and Roy Keane have praised Virgil Van Dijk greatly for his performance in the last couple of years since joining Liverpool.
Van Dijk signed for Liverpool in the 2018 winter transfer window and instantly made himself a favorite.
He has been nominated for the Ballon d’Or this season and looks like the real deal.
If anything could make his level more credible it would have been the praising of two harsh hitting pundits supporting his rival clubs, Chelsea and Manchester United. And that is exactly what happened.
It was Jose Mourinho, the former Chelsea and Manchester United manager and Roy Keane, the former Manchester United captain who have had to bow down to the brilliance of VVD.
As per the Daily Mail, Mourinho said on Sky Sports: “It would be unfair to other fantastic central defenders. In English football, yes for sure. He has everything and its almost impossible to find weakness in his game.”
Meanwhile, Keane added: “He’s been fantastic. The sign of a brilliant player is when he makes those around him better. The stats behind it are fantastic.”
Let us hope Liverpool get to see a lot more of the same from the big Dutchman!
