Man United legend Gary Neville was one of those that criticized Merseyside outfit, Liverpool, when they moved in for Netherlands international Virgil Van Dijk in the 2018 January winter transfer window.

The Merseyside outfit paid a whopping £75 million to Southampton for Virgil Van Dijk even when he was not proven at the big level and that move was well criticized by the Red Devils legend.

The football legend has turned Sky Sports pundit to confess to being wrong after raising his eyebrows as a result of the price.

Gary Neville said he wished another team had secured his signature and not the Reds team, noting that he was first surprised at the amount paid for the star player but that has now been justified.

The Red Devils legend confessed that Virgil Van Dijk is absolutely outstanding and deserved more praise for a good job over the last year.

He has now admitted that Virgil Van Dijk could be better than Sergio Ramos and Raphael Varane who have been the best in the world.

However, manager Jurgen Klopp had earlier stated that the club would not have paid such a huge fee for the former Southampton central defender if they were not 100% sure of his quality.
