Virgil van Dijk: my hero!
Today as the players were walking off for half-time, Arsenal defender Sokratis started mouthing off to Mo Salah, for the penalty our Egyptian won at the end of the 45.
It was farcical from the Greek, as he fouled Salah not once but twice!
But in a moment fans adored, van Dijk came over to save his pal, before club captain Jordan Henderson got off the bench and joined in.
Below, you can see the clip and the fan reaction to it.

Shithouse Sokratis having a go at Salah all the way into the tunnel. Captain Van Dijk comes in and helps out his mate, as does captain Hendo from the bench. I love this team.

Sokratis needs a big slap off van Dijk for abusing our Mo… How on earth he thought he didn't give that penalty…. Fucking twat!

Seeing Van Dijk step in at the tunnel amid the snapping of Sokratis was really classy. Leadership 👌
