Virgil van Dijk makes huge promise to Liverpool fans

The Dutchman was desperate for a move to the Reds throughout the summer but Southampton rejected all advances, despite him handing in a transfer request. But Jurgen Klopp finally got his man as Liverpool sealed a record-breaking £75m deal earlier this month. Van Dijk instantly became a hero as a late winner on his debut dumped fierce rivals Everton out of the FA Cup. And while the 26-year-old couldn’t have enjoyed a better start, he insists he still has to prove he’s worthy of a starting place.

“I just want to give everything I have,” he told Sky Sports. “I think I can help the team maybe achieve more than the club is already doing. “It doesn't mean I'm going to play every week, just because of the price tag, I still need to prove myself. There are amazing defenders here, don't get me wrong. “I think over the past year or so, 90 per cent of fans I meet are Liverpool fans. “It's just something special. You want to give it back to them, work hard and achieve, and then get trophies with this beautiful club. It's just a massive club, and I feel it.” Liverpool are currently fourth in the Premier League, three points behind second-placed Manchester United. They return to action tomorrow and face a tough test against league leaders Manchester City.
