Football is simply too easy for Virgil van Dijk, ex Liverpool defender, Mark Lawrenson. He recently revealed that the amazing centre-back is definitely bringing out the best out of his defensive teammates.
According to him, the game always looks easy to the Holland international and he never gets his kit dirty.
He added that VVD also has such a fantastic effect on Joel Matip because the Cameroon defender is a much better player playing with him.
His words, “The game’s easy to him,”
“It was like when Hansen played, it was just too easy.”
“He never got his kit dirty, it was like ‘what’s your problem?’ when you’d come off covered in blood and snot and everything and he’d just walk off and basically give his kit to the kit-man and tell him he won’t need to wash it this week.”
“Everyone keeps going on about Van Dijk and Hansen is the closest person that I can think of that’s comparable.”
“He’s a Rolls-Royce of a centre-back,”
“He also has such a fantastic effect on Joel Matip. Matip is a much better player playing with him, as you would be, but the thing about Joel Matip when he plays with Van Dijk is that he comes out and plays.”
“He comes out and joins into the midfield and commits members of the opposition which is really really good.”
“I don’t think Matip particularly likes football, I don’t think he really enjoys it but it’s just something that he’s really good at, but he’s really really good when he’s got Van Dijk beside him.”
