Virgil van Dijk eager to silence Liverpool rivals over Premier League title barbs


Virgil van Dijk has revealed  his hunger to wipe the smile off people who have long been taunting Liverpool for their long-term Premier League title setbacks

The  Reds are just two wins from securing their first ever Premier League title this season and Van Dijk who has made himself a significant player for Liverpool can't wait to silence rival fans who taunt his current side about their 30 years without a League crown.

The Premier League season has been suspended because  of coronavirus until April 3 when the Reds will take on Manchester City at the Etihad.

If Jurgen Klopp's side can beat City, they will secure their first ever Premier League title, as the Manchester Blues will not be able to catch with them in the remaining fixtures.

If and when Liverpool get their hands on the trophy Van Dijk will enjoy not hearing title taunts hurled his way.

"I have been aware of it because it has been such a while since we won the League.

"Rival fans always talk about us not having won the Premier League and when you are at the club you get these messages as well.

"It is something we are striving to achieve. We play for trophies all the time and I've been very fortunate to have won the Champions League last year, gone close to Man City who were a bit better than us in the league last year and now 25 points clear with a game in hand so things not too bad.

"Anyone is entitled to their opinion and the conversation about us not winning the League for so long is something I shut out - that doesn't bother me at all.

"I just try to do my best every day whether it is in training or going out on the pitch and do everything I can to help the team.

"Other people from other clubs don't bother us – but it'll be nice to shut them up!"
