France Football’s best midfielder in football history gave praise to his talented juniors. Having an injury and a long-term hiatus, but Van Dijk is still selected for FIFA’s best team of the year. The Dutch midfielder is one of four Liverpool players to join Allison, Alexander-Arnold and Thiago Alcantara.
The 2019/20 season saw Van Dijk and Liverpool sublimate when they won the Premier League. And he broke the all-time record of English football when he was crowned king 7 rounds early.
In the Golden Ball poll, Van Dijk finished second after Lionel Messi with only 7 points less. Van Dijk suffered a knee ligament injury after colliding with Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford in the 5th round of the Premier League.
Responding to France Football, the German football legend shared: “The libero position no longer exists in football today. However, Virgil van Dijk’s style of play really impressed me. I started to notice. He is at Liverpool and the Dutch team. His strength and ability is really impressive. He shows it at all levels. Van Dijk has no weaknesses”.
The man voted by France Football as the best midfielder of all time also emphasized: “At first glance, with such stature, we might think Van Dijk lacks speed and slow, but this is completely wrong. He is very flexible and always predictable. I am asking for this player”.

Real Christmas is coming soon for Liverpool fans as midfielder Virgil van Dijk offers hope he will return to play this season soon. The Dutchman has just shared an update of his injury recovery process on his personal Instagram.
