Recently, Liverpool’s number one midfielder, Virgil van Dijk, has made a candid statement about this unfortunate “accident”. Share on BBC Sounds, this player said:
“I think trying to stay first is the hardest thing.“
“Everyone wants you to stumble when you’re at the top.“
“Life is like that, especially in these days. For me, I want to dedicate myself to my retirement and then won’t feel any regrets. ”
“I don’t want any regrets after that, I think it will be the worst feeling you can have. Going forward will be challenging times. We are the champions. “
“We should enjoy this moment“.
