Virgil van Dijk has a habit of celebrating early whenever Mo Salah is in the penalty area…
But his reaction when Gini Wijnaldum lobbed Asmir Begovic on Saturday was one of pure disbelief!
A clip, which we’ve shared below, shows van Dijk holding his hands to the side in utter shock; turning to an invisible person as if to say, ‘Did that really happen?!’
Wijnaldum is not prolific in front of goal, despite scoring over 20 in a single season while in Holland.
In total for Liverpool, he’s notched ten times – not an awful lot considering he signed in the summer of 2016.
But under Jurgen Klopp, his game is a far more rounded one; charged with linking defence, midfield and attack – filling smart areas of the pitch tactically to create space for others and working tirelessly.
In fact, he’s one of the first names on our team-sheet.
(As is his countryman van Dijk!)
