According to Joe, Van Dijk is a dominant player and the Reds are extremely lucky to have him.
He added that he is a top player who has a top personality.
His words, “I’m buzzing for Virg. Everyone knows how happy I am when he scores and it’s nice for us to put work in in training on those set-pieces and then they come off.
“I don’t think it’s easy to measure what he does for us as a team. He’s such a dominant character, a dominant player. He’s a special player and we’re lucky to have him at the club – he’s my big brother! He’s a top player and a top person to be alongside.”
“It’s been positive for me to get a nice run of games and I think the biggest thing is I’m trying to do my best to contribute to the team.
“We know how important each game is and on a personal note and as a team, I think we just focus on the next game.
“No-one’s getting ahead of themselves or thinking any further than the next game and that’s what’s most important about this team. We’ve got so many characters in the dressing room as well as the manager to keep it like that. It’s just about keeping our heads down, focusing and cracking on.”
On if Liverpool are looking at the EPL table, “No, not at all.
“We just focus on each game and the three points that are ahead of us at the time, [we’re] not focusing on the points [total] or whatever. We’re in this position and it’s one that we’re focused on and just hungry to finish off.”
