The Liverpool FC legend Jamie Carragher was awed by the size of Virgil van Dijk after meeting the January signing at Melwood
Jamie Carragher was left awestruck by the sheer size of Virgil van Dijk after the Liverpool FC legend met the January signing at Melwood training ground on Friday afternoon.
Liverpool FC signed Van Dijk in a £75m deal from Premier League rivals Southampton in the January transfer window to finally address their defensive deficiencies.
The 26-year-old scored on his Liverpool FC debut after the Netherlands international netted a winner in a 2-1 victory over Everton in the FA Cup third round last week.
Van Dijk’s first big test as a Liverpool FC defender will come against Premier League leaders Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.
The Merseyside outfit have endured defensive problems since Carragher hung up his boots in May 2013 following a long and distinguished career.
Former Liverpool FC defender Carragher joked at the height difference between the retired England defender and the world’s most expensive defender.
Carragher wrote: “Me & Big Virg! Interview @skysports Sunday 😂😂”
Liverpool FC managed to see off competition from Premier league leaders Manchester City and defending champions Chelsea.
The Reds are in fourth place in the Premier League table and three points clear of their closest challengers Tottenham Hotspur.
The Merseyside outfit signed four players in the summer transfer window to improve their squad.
