Pedro has compared Virgil van Dijk and Sergio Ramos ahead of Chelsea’s Super Cup clash with Liverpool.

Virjil van Dijk is the most expensive defender before Harry’s Maguire’s £80million move to Manchester United.

He was also crowned PFA Player of the Year for his outstanding performances across the Premier League campaign.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday night’s match, Pedro praised Van Dijk and compared him with Sergio Ramos.

“They are very good central defenders, probably at this time at the top,’ the Chelsea winger said. Sergio Ramos is very good. I know him very well: great defender, great with the ball. Van Dijk is also the same: so strong, very good in the air, scores goals. Two big players. He’s in a good moment. Last season with Liverpool, he had a great season winning the Champions League and the best player in the Premier League. He’s in a good moment and he’s a good defender.”
