Had the final two games of last season gone differently, we may have been building statues of every member of Jurgen Klopp’s star-studded squad but it turns out that only one man was deemed good enough to make a team of the year – Virgil van Dijk.
As shared on EA Sports FIFA’s Twitter account, our No.4 was paired with Eder Militao as the best centre-backs in football.
The team was voted for by fans around the world but it must be a big moment for the Dutch captain to be handed the accolade and it shows how widely respected he is.
Although 2023 hasn’t started too well, let’s hope that we can end the year with many more Reds collecting such awards for their work in the coming 12 months.
