Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk has named Thiago Silva and Antonio Rugider among the best defenders in the world.

Discussing the best players in that position in the game, the Reds’ star shared his praise for the Blues duo.

“There’s so many good defenders out there,” Van Dijk told Sky Sports.

“The old guys Sergio Ramos, Thiago Silva, Gerard Pique.

“The game has evolved and defending is different.

“If you look at Laporte and Rudiger. I think he had a fantastic season last year and the way he came back from a knee injury, I have even more respect for him now.”
