      Best defender in the world, I’d wager to say he’s a top 10 player in the world regardless of position.

      Remember how some people said he wouldn't make the defense better and it was down to Klopp's system we leaked goals?

        Virgil van Dijk vows to continue to protect Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah after Arsenal flare-up
         

      Virgil van Dijk says he will continue to “protect” Liverpool team-mate Mohamed Salah from any unfair criticism.

      The Dutch defender was involved in a bust-up with Arsenal's Sokratis as the players left the field at half-time at Anfield on Saturday.

      Van Dijk stepped in after the Gunners centre-back accused Salah of diving to earn the penalty which helped Liverpool establish a dominant 4-1 lead at the interval.

      “I saw that he went to Mo (Salah) and was saying that he dived. He was attacking him a bit, but I wanted to say he didn’t dive,” Van Dijk said.

      “Obviously everyone came around us and it looked like we were fighting or something but we weren’t. I just wanted to talk to him. But that happens in football and we move on.

      “I’m protecting my teammates and that’s normal, that’s how everyone should react and that’s what we all need to do, to back each other. That’s what I definitely do.”

      Suppose there will be no apology off the gobs***e when he sees the replay and the actual contact with Salah which constituted a foul/penalty.

      Just make him captain and be done with it.
      WHAT an unbelievable signing.
      We've signed some great players, but imho VVD is the best of the lot   [just pipping Mo]
      A brilliant player, a leader, all round good bloke - can't fault him.
      Another master stroke from Jürgen.

      Pretty sure the only people fussed with that armband are the supporters, doubt Virgil  or any of the rest of the players give a sh*te.

      The club has plenty of captains both on and off the pitch.

      What's taking Klopp so long to make him Captain? He does look like a born leader.

      You go through and look what Klopp has said regarding Henderson and all the things he does that are off the pitch that is never seen or spoken about.

      I would bet that the responsibilities of being captain of this club is 10% on pitch and 90% behind the scenes and i would also think most players look at that 90% and are thankful they don't have to fulfill those responsibility. Virgil is a natural leader as is Milly as well as Gini; none of those players needs an armband to lead during a match and are probably quite thankful that Hendo has to deal with all the other bullshit and they don't.

      Can't see it happening. Chances are coz Hendo  been there considerably longer than VVD out of respect he's giving him till the summer in case you lift the Premier Trophy. I think its right that Hendo lifts it first as Captain.

      After that wouldn't make sense to leave it any longer for VVD. He's got the lot this lad.
