Van Dijk foresees Robertson as future Liverpool captain

Virgil van Dijk foresees Andy Robertson as a future Liverpool captain.

“If he keeps improving he will [captain Liverpool],” Dutch international Van Dijk told BBC Scotland.

“He’s already a leader. You don’t need an armband to be a leader for this team.

“He’s doing very well, he’s made incredible steps in his career and he just needs to keep doing what he’s doing.”

The left-back has played 48 games for the Reds since joining from Hull City in 2017 and was handed the Scotland captaincy earlier this year.
