Kolo Toure: Virgil van Dijk has a weakness


Former Liverpool defender Kolo Toure has revealed the one way opponents can beat  pass Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has been able to established himself as arguably one of the world’s best defensive players since joining the Reds two years ago.

The Dutchman was believed to be a short distance away from his first Ballon d'Or prize this year before the event to be held for 2020 was cancelled last month.

More season stats have shown very few players have succeeded getting past van Dijk and Toure believes that's because his oppositions weren't doing the right thing.

"He’s an unbelievable player," Toure told Stats Perform News (via Goal ).

"He's a top player. He's got speed, height, he can jump. He's got technique. He can switch the game with his long passes. He has got everything.

"I haven't seen many players challenge him one on one. In my opinion, that's his weakness! He's really tall and if you really attack him with the ball, he can struggle, but he's so clever.

"He's so clever because he drops well, but if you are really aggressive in attack in a one-on-one, I think you can get something from him.

"He's a really clever player. He's got [Joe] Gomez on his side, good players on his side to help him as well.

"There are good players around him and I think that makes his game easy, but I think he’s got so many qualities."
