Liverpool fans would not stand for the rubbish on Twitter last night that Virgil van Dijk had made a mistake during Germany 3-2 Netherlands.
Serge Gnabry scored a world-class goal in the first-half, in which he cut inside and found the top corner – which was laughably labelled a van Dijk error by fans of our rivals…
Of course, it really wasn’t – and the Dutchman actually defended the incident well. When someone finds the top corner, you have to say fair play – and Gnabry did.
For us, it’s more proof that the 28-year-old is the best in the business right now – as if it was any other central defender – nothing would have been said.
Thankfully, both van Dijk and Gini Wijnaldum will now return from international duty and join up with Jurgen Klopp unscathed, in time for Liverpool’s game with Spurs this Sunday.
Nothing less than an Anfield victory over Mauricio Pochettino’s men will do.
And we’re backing van Dijk to pocket Harry Kane in front of the watching world.
