It’s sometimes hard for other clubs’ fans to admit when another team’s players are quality, but some Sheffield United fans have sung a different tone after seeing Virgil van Dijk in the flesh.
The Dutch international was crucial in our 1-0 win over the Blades over the weekend – a game in which we didn’t put our best food forward, and were blessed with a lucky goal.
Some United fans have taken to social media to express their impressions of van Dijk – and a couple of them have gone as far as to say he’s the best they’ve ever seen.
I mean – if Liverpool supporters are calling him one of the best, you’d imagine he’s sheer class, but the way some rival fans go on, you’d perhaps expect that we’ve overrated him.
Glad to see these Blades fans have cut through all that. Take a look at their messages:
