Virgil Van Dijk ruthlessly trolls Manchester United by reminding them of Liverpool‘s 7-0 win over the club. The result caused shockwaves around the world as the team from Merseyside completely humiliated their rivals at Anfield. Van Dijk, who played the game that day, had an interview with Harry Pinero- a diehard United fan.
During his YouTube game show ‘Guess the Song’ Harry was winning 7-6 against the Liverpool defender. He enthusiastically said, “7-6, let’s go!” But Van Dijk playfully responded, “You like seven, no? Sorry,” leaving Harry’s jaw on the floor.
Cleary the Manchester United fan, along with many others, had not forgotten that day with many fans online rating the moment as the most unforgettable result from the Premier League last season.“That was one of the worst days of my life. You were responsible for that”, Harry Pinero reminded this to the Dutchman. To which Van Dijk simply replied, “I tried my best.”
Meanwhile, Liverpool has started their 2023/24 season with a bang. The Reds are currently undefeated with 16 points out of a possible 18. At this rate, the club could once again find themselves in a title race against Pep Guardiola‘s treble-winning Manchester City.
Virgil Van Dijk’s incredible tenure at Liverpool
Liverpool paid upwards of £75 million for the center-back in 2018 from Southampton. With many online debating, whether the price tag was too high for a defender who had never proved himself at a top club, those arguments came to an end swiftly.
The defender has been a revelation at the club with many, in his short tenure, already regarding him as one of the best defenders in Premier League history. His performances saw him lift the Champions League and the Premier League with Liverpool picking up several individual accolades along the way. For many other great players in the past, if it were not for Lionel Messi, the Dutchman would have won the Ballon d’Or in 2019 missing out by only 7 points.
The player will go down in Premier League history for his dominant display in defense. Good on the ball, smart off of it Virgil Van Dijk personified what a modern defender should be and took it to new heights.
