Van Dijk

The insinuations that Liverpool defender Vigil Van Dijk is the best in Europe is unacceptable to former Man United defender Rio Ferdinand.

Vigil Van Dijk joined the Anfield in the last summer window and has established himself in the Jurgen Klopp’s team with solid and impressive performances to his name as well as ensuring that the Reds concede fewer goals so far this season.

He has been hailed by the Reds former player Jamie Carragher as one of the finest in the position in the world as a result of his performances in Liverpool.

However, this is being disputed by the Red Devils legend, who is of the opinion that Vigil Van Dijk has got a long way to go before being regarded as the finest in the world. According to him, the Dutchman is not anywhere close to the Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos.

Rio Ferdinand stressed that for Vigil Van Dijk to be regarded as one of the best, he must win trophies for his club as that will be the only criteria to judge him.

Meanwhile, Rio Ferdinand will not take away the fact that Vigil Van Dijk is a fantastic player who is doing good at the moment.
