Liverpool legend Hysen opens up and announces ‘Van Dijk is one of the best ever’ –

Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk has become “one of the best ever” when it comes to the art of defending, says Glenn Hysen.

Many doubted that Van Dijk would have what it took to play for a side like Liverpool when he made that step up from Southampton just a few seasons ago, but that was quickly forgotten about as the Dutchman helped turn Liverpool into one of the best defensively.

He is regarded as the best centre-back in the game right now, has helped Liverpool claim the Champions League title and has been a massive part of why the Reds dominated the Premier League to regain that title after 30-years of hurt.

And after watching the Dutchman’s performances over the last few seasons for Liverpool, Hysen feels the Defender has taken up a standing among the all-time greats, telling the Liverpool Echo: “Virgil van Dijk is so calm, he’s so confident. I was half-decent compared to him but he’s much better with the ball.

“He can play the ball and is more technical than I was. He’s one of the best ever.

“I’d probably be crap if I was playing now, I’d be too slow. It’s so quick now, not my style.”

There is no doubt that Van dijk is one of the best in the game right now, but he needs to add a few more titles to that cabinet at Liverpool before he can be considered one of the very best of all time.

But the quality he has and in the side he is playing in, it will not be long before Liverpool add a few more titles to the cabinet.
