Van Dijk

Liverpool fans have been handed a big relief knowing that they have got another player who is of the same mould as Virgil van Dijk at the club.

The Liverpool U18 youth team have been reported to have the presence of a young player who is also commanding as Virgil Van Dijk and wears a No4 shirt, with same kind of composure and abilities.

The new Virgil Van Dijk is Rhys Williams who has been an important member of the U18 team and has ensured they win games by not conceding in the youth games.

Having identified him, the Merseyside club are desperate to hand him his professional contract at the club as they hope to have him develop to a first-team player in coming years.

Rhys Williams has been at the Reds team since he was U10 but impressed at that level and was made to gain promotion to other youth ranks until he got to his current stage.

Just like Virgil van Dijk, Rhys Williams is a confident player who has the strength to face opponents and has the control of the 18 box with both level and aerial abilities.

However, it has been reported that the young lad has identified Virgil Van Dijk as a player he models and has been watching him to learn more.
