‘He’s honestly unbelievable’: Some Liverpool fans rave about 27-year-old’s display vs Bayern

Virgil Van Dijk

Some sections of Liverpool fans have praised the impact of Virgil van Dijk during the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 clash against Bayern Munich last night.

The Reds had everything to do in the away leg after only managing a goalless draw at Anfield, and they certainly rose to the occasion, with a comfortable 3-1 win over the Bundesliga outfit.

Sadio Mane was once more adjudged the man of the match after a second successive brace, but many Liverpool fans were delighted with the showing of Van Dijk.

The Netherlands international has been a solid presence at the heart of the Reds’ backline, but he has recently contributed to the scoresheet with goals and assists which was the case against Bayern.

Van Dijk contributed to Mane’s sublime opener with a brilliant long-range ball, and he continued his excellent form after the break, where he grabbed the match-defining second goal with a header to end Bayern’s hopes of any comeback.

The Dutchman has unquestionably proved to be one of the club’s best signings in recent history, and the supporters were elated by his showing in Munich, where he also curbed the threat presented by Robert Lewandowski with ease.

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter…
