Virgil van Dijk shows he’s a gentleman with post-match gesture after Liverpool beat Shrewsbury

Posted by

Virgil van Dijk reportedly paid the away dressing room a visit after the full-time whistle called Liverpool’s FA Cup meeting with Shrewsbury to an end.

The classy gesture from the Dutchman was shared by opposition head coach Steve Cotterill (via a tweet from PA journalist Carl Markham), with the manager describing the centre-half as a ‘gentleman’.

The Salop sparked life into the Third Round of the competition by taking the lead at Anfield via a ruthless Daniel Udoh finish, with the Merseysiders responding well to claw back an equaliser and the lead before half-time.
