Virgil van Dijk has praised Jurgen Klopp for the progress he has overseen at Liverpool FC since taking over.

The German manager has been earning plenty of praise for the positive impact he has had at the Merseyside outfit since signing to become Brendan Rodgers’ permanent successor back in October 2015.

Klopp successfully led Liverpool FC back into the Champions League via a top four finish in his first full campaign in charge last term.

The Reds manager has also been praised for the way in which he has got his Liverpool FC team playing exciting attacking football this season.

And Van Dijk, who became Liverpool FC’s first signing of the January transfer window this week after joining from Southampton, has admitted that he has been hugely impressed by the impact Klopp has had at the Anfield club.

Asked how impressed he has been with Klopp’s impact at Liverpool, Van Dijk told the club’s website: “A lot. Since he’s come in, I think he has made a lot of progress until now and I think it is only hopefully going to get better and better.

“Hopefully I can contribute to that as well and keep working hard.”

Van Dijk will be hoping to make his Liverpool FC debut for the Reds when they take on derby rivals Everton in the third round of the FA Cup on Friday night at Anfield.

The Reds are currently in fourth place in the Premier League table as they chase Champions League qualification once again.
