Jurgen Klopp told Liverpool FC signing only has one weakness
The Chelsea FC legend suggests Virgil van Dijk's only weakness is that the Liverpool FC signing finds the game too easy
Pat Nevin believes Virgil van Dijk’s only weakness is that the Liverpool FC defender can become bored.
The Netherlands international completed a move to the Reds in a £75m deal from Southampton in the January transfer window.
Van Dijk became Liverpool FC’s record signing and earned the daunting title of the most expensive defender in the world.
The 26-year-old has scored one goal in six appearances in all competitions so far this season to make a decent start to his Anfield career.
Van Dijk helped Liverpool FC to secure a commanding 5-0 win against Porto in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 in Portugal on Wednesday night.
Former Chelsea FC defender Nevin hailed Van Dijk as a world-class defender but admitted there is one weakness to the Dutch defender’s game.
“Van Dijk only has one problem. It is so easy for him, he gets bored,” Nevin told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“He doesn’t look bored right now because he is being tested at the top level. He is only going to get better in the coming seasons. He is world class.”
Liverpool FC are in third place in the Premier League table and two points adrift of Manchester United in the race to secure a top-four spot.
The Reds will take on West Ham United in their next Premier League game at Anfield on Saturday 24 February.
