Classic Big Interview: Virgil van Dijk

Here’s another chance to hear my interview with Virgil van Dijk from season five.

The world’s greatest defender’s big break was his move to Celtic, which grounded him in British football. Next up Southampton, where coach Ronald Koeman picked on Virgil – only to bring out the best in him.

You’ll hear about risk taking, passing and pressing at Anfield, and why Lionel Messi was Virgil’s most challenging opponent.

And I ask, just how the heck did Liverpool turn around the 3-0 defeat away to Barcelona in the semi-final of the Champions League in 2019?
