Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk is only going to keep improving, says Jurgen Klopp

Virgil van Dijk is only going to get better, with Jurgen Klopp claiming there is ‘still a lot to come’ from the Liverpool star.

Van Dijk, the centre-back, is already regarded as the best defender in the Premier League and perhaps in the world.

Van Dijk has been one of the Premier League’s most influential players since joining Liverpool

He has gone from strength to strength since leaving Southampton for Anfield last January, helping the Reds keep 17 Premier League clean sheets this season on their way to just 19 goals conceded in 32 matches.

The Netherlands international is seen as a Liverpool captain in waiting – he has already worn the armband a number of times on a temporary basis – and the Reds’ biggest challenge will surely be keeping hold of Van Dijk amid interest from some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
