“Virgil van Dyke is lucky not to play in the Premier League in the era of Drogba, Lamaprd, Alan Shearer, Rooney, Van Persie, Tevez, Adebayor and Diego Costa,” said Balak.
No wonder they think he’s the best defender in the league. ”
This, of course, was not well received by the fans of the “reds”, and the legend of the club Steve Nicole, who currently works as an analyst for the largest sports media – ESPN, replied to Balak.
“I’m curious to point out which aspect of his game he doesn’t like, because you can’t tell me that even Drogba wouldn’t have a physical problem against him,” Nicole said.
I don’t remember anyone in the Premier League or the Champions League being able to get through it or overtake it. So – and this is not a problem.
Can he file? Yes, he can pass. I would really like to know what Van Dyke’s game lacks in order to face the strikers he chooses. ”
Van Dyke arrived in Liverpool for 85 million euros from Southampton in January 2018, after which he became one of the most important players of Jurgen Klopp.
The Dutch central defender has a huge contribution to the success of the Merseysiders in the last year and a half, including winning the Champions League last season and the expected lifting of the Premier League title in just over a month.
