Ronaldo Koeman turned Virgil van Dijk into a centre-forward last night and got a massive reward for doing so!
Liverpool’s captain bagged Netherlands a 90th minute equaliser, which was enough to see them top their Nations League group ahead of France and Germany and qualify for the semi-finals alongside Switzerland, England and Portugal.
Minutes before van Dijk’s goal, he was handed a note from the sidelines, which unequivocally shows that he was instructed to go and play up top!
Fans may not know, but the 27-year-old was often used as a striker during his Groningen – and once hit double figures for Celtic during his best campaign in front of goal…
At Liverpool, VVD has only ever scored once, which was on debut against Everton – so it’s about time we started seeing his offensive attributes at club level too!
