Virgil van Dijk opens up on key reason he snubbed Man City and Chelsea. “When you compare the clubs, you look at the history.”

Van Dijk has revealed the crucial role Jurgen Klopp played in convincing him to join Liverpool amid the lure of rivals Manchester City and Chelsea.

The Dutchman’s transformative impact since his £75million club-record move in the 2018 winter window has seen Liverpool since become the tightest defence in England’s top flight, helping them to win the Champions League last term and the Premier League this season.

“I had the chance to go to Chelsea and Man City,” Van Dijk, named the PFA Player of the Season last year, admitted.

“When you compare the clubs, you look at the history, the town, the current squad, their plans for the near future.”

“But the most important thing you look at is the manager – and Jurgen Klopp is an important reason why I chose for Liverpool.”

“Klopp has something special. Is it his energy? Is it his overall image? I think it is his man management. These days that is more important than anything in football.”

“Klopp gives you this great feeling. He is genuinely happy when you walk into the club in the morning.”
