Memories: the world’s best central defender in MFC

One year ago Liverpool FC passed through the Marbella Football Center prior to the achievement of the 2019 Champions League. The English team went to the Costa del Sol for a stage, and with them Van Dijk, the best central defender of the moment.

With a strong mentality, an imposing physique, and an impeccable work ethic, Van Dijk is an unsurpassed defender. Let’s not forget also his intelligence on the lawn and his technical resources. This allows him to get the ball played, helping the team a lot in attack too.

Dutch (Breda, 1991) but with Surinamese ancestry, Virgil began his career at Willem II (a friend of Football Impact), before moving on to the FC Groningen youth team. With this team he will debut in the Eredivisie and will stand out soon, attracting the attention of Celtic Glasgow, who will sign him in 2013.

Only two years later he will be transferred to Southampton FC for a value 6 times higher than the purchase. A little over two years at Southampton and again he will revalue almost 600%, being transferred for 85 million euros.

In his individual record we can highlight the following titles:

  • Champions League 2019 and runner-up of 2018.
  • 3 Scottish Premiership (Scottish league).

In addition, in the 2019/20 season, Liverpool FC was breaking all records and their victory was presumed many days in advance.
