Speaking on Sky Sports Football YouTube ChannelNeal Maupay has spoken about Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk.
The Frenchman was asked which defender was the toughest he has ever faced, and perhaps unsurprisingly he said van Dijk.
The Dutchman is truly one of Europe’s top centre-backs, and Maupay says he’s literally too physically fit.
Indeed, Maupay says van Dijk is too strong, too big and too fast to compete with.
What was said?
Maupay full of praise for van Dijk.
“Van Dijk was probably, I don’t know, that man was too strong, too fast, too tall, too everything. But this season when we played against Man City, I had a very difficult game against Dias,” Maupay said.
Maupay is absolutely right about van Dijk, he is the perfect man in the back for Liverpool.
He has a height, speed and strength that surpasses absolutely any player physically, and when you count on his reading of the game and his ability to hold the ball, you have a player. which could hardly be better.
Van Dijk is a former PFA Player of the Year for a reason, and we certainly don’t envy strikers like Maupay who have to face him.
