Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: 'Virgil van Dijk may not face Manchester City'

Virgil van Dijk is not fazed by becoming the most expensive defender in world football.

The defender, who arrived at Southampton in September 2015 from the Scottish team, Celtic, for £13 million (€14.6 million) and signed a new contract for six seasons previous year, was in the orbit of other major Premier League teams such as Manchester City and Chelsea.

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk insists the £75m price tag is a big compliment to his hard work, and does not make him nervous. "I can't change anything about that", he added.

After making a dream start to life with Liverpool with the victor in the Merseyside derby, Virgil van Dijk spoke to Jamie Carragher about his hopes.

"So the fact that they have got that money and brought in Van Dijk, who I think is going to be a huge success - I have said it from day one, he is the sort of player that they need".

Do you think the Dutchman made the correct decision? "I'm just happy that everything is done, I enjoyed every bit of it at Southampton, with the players I had there and the managers too".
