Virgil Van Dijk came-in Liverpool as the world's most expensive defender after a £75m deal was agreed between the Merseysiders and Southampton in the winter transfer of 2018.

Since his arrival the Dutchman has proved he's fully justified his £75m price-tag at Anfield, marshaling the Reds defence to be one of the most solid in the Premier League.

Virgil van Dijk is currently claimed to be the best defender in the world after he had played a big role in Liverpool reaching the champions League final last term and also being vital in their Premier League title race this season.

But such claims are not inline with former Spanish football ace Carles Puyol's opinion, with the former Barcelona skipper believing his old pair during his days at Nou Camp is no.1.

When asked by Marca who he believes is best defender in the world, Puyol replied: "Gerard Pique, without a doubt.

"Yes, he's the best central defender in the world. We're different. He is key to Barcelona in everything he contributes, in his leadership. He's a phenomenon and a great friend."
