Virgil van Dijk speaks out on Lionel Messi and fires warning

Virgil van Dijk who is supposed to stop Lionel Messi, says he is ready to battle with the superstar.

Barcelona and last season’s runners-up Liverpool will go head-to-head in the Champions League semi-finals at Camp Nou on Wednesday, May 1.

Van Dijk has been impressive since joining Merseyside club in January of 2018.

With the Dutch in defense, Jurgen Klopp’s side have currently conceded only 20 times, which is the best result in the league.

Van Dijk said on Messi: “I think he is the best player in the world. But you see how we play and how we defend. We don’t defend one v one, we defend all together and we attack all together as well so we will see. We will be ready.”
