It’s well known how much Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk get along, even if the relationship does seem a little one way.
Our No.4 always seems to try and turn his attention to his centre-back partner in some way and loves sharing a joke with the former Schalke man.
During the most recent ‘Inside’ training video from Liverpool’s YouTube channel, the playful side of Holland’s captain is revealed.
As Fabinho is shown to have touched the ball outside the zone being used for the rondo, our centre-half shouts: “Out! Out!” before then picking up some grass to throw at our No.32.
His playful laugh afterwards shows the love he has for the Cameroon international and it’s great to see how well the duo get along.
In truth the whole video is certainly worth a watch and it’s one of the best training videos that has been released.
