Twitter user ends journalist for silly Ruben Dias v Virgil van Dijk point

Posted by

Is Ruben Dias a very, very good defender? Yes – obviously.

Is he in Virgil van Dijk’s league? No – obviously.

We remember a time when many were claiming Aymeric Laporte was as good as VVD – now he can’t get in the starting XI.

Simon Johnson of the Athletic tweeted that Dias doesn’t get the same credit van Dijk did when he first moved to Liverpool, but the reasons why are pronounced.

City would still win without Dias. Liverpool didn’t and haven’t been able to win without the Dutchman.

We quite like how @lfcnxsir put it on Twitter, in all honesty:

There was long hope that Virg would be back for our season’s run-in, but with five games left, what’s the point?

Our top four chances are not blown, but fairly close to being – and it’s best the world’s best centre-back gets a few more months rehab in his locker before returning to the lineup next season.

  1. What a pathetic argument. So by your logic if Pele in his pomp played for Man City he wouldn’t be as good as say Danny Ings because he has to play with Nathan Redmond while Pele gets to play with De Bruyne? That’s basically your argument right here.

  2. They are both at the top of the tree when it comes to their play. Putting tribal loyalties aside all I’d say is that those two, in the centre of any defence, would be pretty much incomparable.

  3. Diaz is better than any other centre back in world he made Manchester city to be solid defensively enough unlike last season
