Van Dijk enjoying being a Red


New Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk has admitted that he has been on a learvning curve since arriving at the club.

The Holland international was speaking to BBC Sport programme Football Focus about his start to life at the club.

“I am getting used to how we play,” he said.

“The intensity of our game is a lot higher than what I was used to.” he continued.

Van Dijk became an instant hit with supporters when he headed home the winner in a 2-1 FA Cup success against rivals Everton on his debut almost two months ago.

“It was a crazy and busy week, something special that I will never forget. I wasn’t even supposed to start the game.” he said.

The former Celtic man has shown a lot of ambition and desire in his interviews and has again stated his drive to achieve his dreams at Anfield.

“I came here to achieve everything possible.” he said.

“I made the choice to come here base on everything. I love the fans, the atmosphere in the stadium and at away games.

“The quality we have in our team is unbelievable. I am proud and happy to be here.

“Klopp is very good and an amazing guy as well. A lot of the attributes he has makes us achieve good things in the future.” he added.

Van Dijk has been relatively quiet about the circumstances around his exit from Southampton and said that fans have not been given the full story.

“People don’t know what really happened.” he said.

“I kept my head down and kept playing. I was out for eight months and was just happy to play again.

“I just switched on again after the transfer window in the summer.

“I didn’t think about anything until I got a phone call from the Southampton board.” he finished.
