At this moment in time, there is probably not a better centre-back in world football than Liverpool ace Virgil van Dijk.
The 27-year-old has been in magnificent form for the Reds this term and grabbed his fifth goal of the season in Wednesday’s 4-1 win at Porto in the Champions League.
If Jurgen Klopp’s side are to be successful this season then they will need the Netherlands international to stay at his current level.
At the time, £75m for Van Dijk seemed like an awful lot money.
The Dutchman has probably more than doubled in value now, though, and Liverpool have a serious centre-back on their hands.
Liverpool’s official Twitter account paid tribute to the defender following the victory at Porto on Wednesday night.
Are the media letting Jurgen Klopp off lightly for his lack of silverware? The Pl>ymaker FC squad have their say in the video below…
And it was not a surprise to see so many of the club’s fans take to social media to express their feelings – a selection of which can be seen below:
