Man City legend Kompany opens up and stuns Premier League with Liverpool Van Dijk claim

Manchester City legend Vincent Kompany has hailed Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk as the best-ever defender in the Premier League.

Since Van Dijk’s arrival at Anfield in January 2018, Jurgen Klopp’s side have been crowned European champions for the sixth time and are within just two wins of claiming their first Premier League title in over 30 years.

He has helped the Liverpool become one of the most impressive defence sides in the Premier League and has added those extra points Liverpool need to become one of the best sides in the game once again.

Now Kompany, who is also regarded very highly in the Premier League, has come out and claimed that Van Dijk is the best defender to ever grace the English game, The Express quote fellow centre-back Kompany as telling BBC Sport: “The reason why I said it is because Liverpool were a great team before Virgil van Dijk and yet they were always vulnerable.

“I never felt that supremacy that they showed this year. It’s very difficult to have a player that has such a big impact at a big club.

“He brought back old-school defending with a modern twist and I respect that.

“The reason why I said it is because Liverpool were a great team before Virgil van Dijk and yet they were always vulnerable.

“I never felt that supremacy that they showed this year. It’s very difficult to have a player that has such a big impact at a big club.

“What he does is simple but so effective which I respect.”

Van Dijk is one of the best players in the game right now, there is no doubt about that, but he needs to add a few more trophies to his cabinet in the Premier League to be considered a great.

Because no matter how good he is, trophies and success determine how you go down in history.
