Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk has warned his team-mates about getting substituted.

The Dutchman has said that those who do not like the idea of being withdrawn during games either need to get used to it or leave the club otherwise.

“You have to, otherwise you better leave.” he said.

“We all want one thing: to be successful, and we need everyone’s help. It’s a long season with a lot of games. We need everyone and everyone knows that as well, and that’s a big strength for us.” he added.

The former Southampton man went on to back forward Mohamed Salah to regain the form that made him one of the best players on the planet during his debut season last year.

“We are seven games in and Mo’s working hard.” he continued.

“He’s still the same Mo, and he needs a bit of luck as well. I’m not worried at all, and he should not be worried either.

“We do it all together, we’ll always be there for him and he’ll deliver as well.

“He had a tough game against Chelsea, but it’s part of football.” he finished.

Liverpool supporters will be pleased to see the confidence and authority on show from the centre-back.
