Jurgen Klopp heaps praise upon Virgil van Dijk


Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has showered praise upon centre-back Virgil van Dijk for his brilliant performance against Crystal Palace. Van Dijk commanded the defence brilliantly throughout the game and helped Liverpool keep a clean sheet.

Klopp said of the Dutchman’s performance, “It was really, really good. It’s obvious. Quality costs a specific price. With cars, it’s the case, and with players too. Nobody thinks about it now. He’s a player in this market who is worth it, and maybe now people think he was too cheap! He loves playing with these boys, and that’s the most important thing.

I don’t know a lot of defenders in the world that can defend Christian Benteke 100 percent of the time, clearly without a foul. It was very important that Virgil was there with that kind of presence.”

Having won two out of two, The Reds will next play Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.
