Jurgen Klopp heaps praise on Virgil van Dijk: ”I could write a book about his skills”

Virgil van Dijk scored as Liverpool beat Bayern Munich in Champions League and boss Jurgen Klopp insisted there is more to come from the Dutch defender.

“What can I say? I could write a book about his skills, about his strength, how much I like him, what a fantastic person he is,” said the Reds boss of his £75million man.

“So young, already so mature, so strong, all good. But Virg knows he can play better and that we can play better than we did (in Munich).

“It’s a difficult place to come. Not a lot of teams have on their cards an away win at Munich. We have that night. Difficult, but cool.”

In 37 appearances this season, van Dijk has helped his side keep 16 clean sheets.
