Virgil Van Dijk’s transfer to Liverpool was certainly not short on drama with the Reds almost getting into legal pickle over the defender after Southampton accused the Merseysiders of trying to tap up their star man in the summer of 2017.
The Dutchman finally got his dream move to Anfield this January as the Reds opened up their cheque book to make him the world’s most expensive defender at a cool £75 million.
While the jury is still out as to whether the 26-year-old has proved his worth for Liverpool, fans have certainly been wooed over by the center back’s dedication and passion for the club quite early into his Anfield career.
Gestures like the one seen in the video below have endeared the Dutchman to the fans at Merseyside which will be a huge boost for the defender himself, having been subject to a lot of criticism from Saints fans for trying to force his move last summer.
