Stoke City midfielder Darren Fletcher has become the latest pundit to pile plaudits onto the Reds’ exceptional defender Virgil van Dijk, calling him a ‘monster’.
Speaking on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Fletcher said: “He’s made a massive difference to Liverpool. He’s a monster, really, so big and powerful, he cruises through games. He’s top class.”
Van Dijk has really excelled since joining us – and he is already the best defender in the Premier League, if not the world.
There is no doubt whatsoever that he is world-class it’s scary how good he is at times.
