It’s the kind of thing that obviously happens 400 times per match, but it’s nice to see the leader of our defence pulling no punches!
Virgil van Dijk was a Rolls Royce throughout today’s 4-0 win over West Ham and if you want to listen to superb post-match podcasts from Liverpool fans discussing his performance, sign up to Anfield Index, here!
A clip has gone viral which tells him telling Sadio Mane to ‘Stop the F*cking cross!’.
We quite enjoy how the Dutchman is swearing in English and channeling Jamie Carragher’s Anfield spirit!
Our defence had no leader before his arrival and today is the kind of game we could have dominated and then conceded from set-pieces without his presence.
He really is as important to us as Mo Salah, Mane and Roberto Firmino.
Check out the clip below and some fan reaction:
