Koeman: Van Dijk liked to learn from everybody but he was too lazy and arrogant

Virgil van Dijk is considered to be one of the best defenders in the world by Ronald Koeman but he has not always felt that way.

Virgil van Dijk has become one of the best defenders in the world, but according to Ronald Koeman, he used to be “a little too lazy” and “a little too arrogant” on the pitch

Both have worked together when Koeman was head coach of the Netherlands and also he was Southampton’s boss when Van Dijk arrived in the Premier League from Celtic in 2015.

Van Dijk when he first arrived at Southampton, Koeman, who now coaches Barcelona, praised him for erasing the negative aspects that existed in his game.

“I think it was great to work with Virgil because he was an open guy in communication. He liked to learn from everybody,” Koeman told

“He had to change his personality a little bit because sometimes he was a little bit too lazy. Maybe people will tell you that he was a little bit arrogant in his football.”

“We worked really hard, but the credit is for the player. He is now, in my opinion, one of the best defenders we have in football.”
