Why Van Dijk’s rise should not be celebrated

Van Dijk

Merseyside outfit Liverpool central defender Virgil Van Dijk has been hailed as one of the best legs in the Premier League and in entire Europe.

The Star defender joined the Reds from Southampton for a fee of about £74 million from Southampton only for him to settle down to become a commanding figure at the club and a man that has helped the Reds team.

All of these feats should not be celebrated if the words of the Reds star Wijnaldum Georginio are anything to go by as he stated that Virgil Van Dijk’s rise to stardom is not a surprise to him.

According to him, they had played together in the national team with the star player making steps to ensure his progress over the years.

He therefore, hailed Virgil Van Dijk for having a big impact at the Anfield, noting that he has big character both off and on the pitch, in addition to his relationship with individuals.

However, Virgil Van Dijk is hoping to laugh at last with the team by winning the Premier League title and the UEFA Champions League as they are both in the view of the teams that stand the chances of winning a silverware this season.
