Manchester United fans’ chant about Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has come back to haunt them

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk must surely go down as one of the best signings of the Premier League era.

Since joining the Reds from Southampton for £75million in January 2018, he has transformed Jurgen Klopp’s side from a defensive mess to Europe’s most difficult team to score against.

Van Dijk was named PFA Player of the Year

No club in Europe’s top leagues have conceded fewer goals than Liverpool this season – and Van Dijk’s influence was recognised at Sunday night’s PFA Awards.

The Dutchman beat Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling to win the prestigious Player of the Year award, however, not everyone was convinced when Liverpool made him the world’s most expensive defender.

No one is talking about his price tag now, and you might even say £75million was a relative bargain, but Manchester United fans did not see this coming.
