Southampton’s Virgil Van Dijk has been one of the biggest talking points of this transfer window after he was nearly set to become the world’s most expensive defender and sign for Liverpool, but the whole story came to an abrupt end after Southampton accused the Merseyside club of ‘tapping up’ their player.

Liverpool were forced to apologise and a few days ago it was confirmed that will face no punishment for their illegal approach.

It was thought that this controversy would be the end of the Dutch defender’s links to Liverpool, but his latest Twitter activity is sure to make a few Liverpool fans fired up while making others think “Oh no, not this again!”.

The Southampton man started following Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher and one of Liverpool’s most respected correspondents – Paul Joyce.




Maybe Van Dijk’s recent Twitter activity is just an expression showing his desire to leave Southampton, or maybe he just followed Carragher because he idolised him? That’s pretty much the beauty and also the downside of the transfer window – anything can happen. Only time will tell us the outcome of the Virgil Van Dijk saga.

  1. Nah, that’s not why VVD began a keen interest in whatever Jamie Carragher said or did. VVD is fully aware that for him to be the best central defender the game has ever witnessed, he needed to learn how to hoof the frigging football to no-man’s land as and when the ball is in contact with his feet just like the great so-called legend of Anfield.

  2. VVD JUST TELL SOUTHAMPTON U WANT TO LEAVE THIS SUMMER AND THE ONLY CLUB IN YOUR MIND IS LIVERPOOL FC. AND KLOPP WILL BRING OUT THE BEST IN YOU AND MAKE YOU MORE GREATER IN FOOTBALL HISTORY EVER IN THIS MELLINIUM. BETWEEN NOW AND NEXTWEEK ATLEAST YOU’RE A RED PLAYER 4REAL.
