In the Premier League, Liverpool has reached on to another point, according to star defender Virgil van Dijk.
Liverpool has achieved a “new level,” says Virgil van Dijk, on their way to the Premier League title this season.
When Manchester City fell to defeat at Chelsea, Liverpool had been crowned league champions for the first time since 1990 on Thursday.
In January 2018 Van Dijk joined Anfield, now adding a league title to last year’s Champions League success, is recognized as one of the world’s best defenders.
Liverpool has hit new heights in 2019-20, having won 28 of 31 league games this season, believes the Netherlands International.
“To be absolutely honest when I joined in the winter I hoped for the best in the first six months, I hoped to settle as quickly as I can,” Van Dijk told BT Sport.
“To reach the Champions League final straight away was a big boost for me personally. It was something that helped me a lot and obviously the year after we came very close with the Premier League and we were very lucky enough and blessed that we could win the Champions League.”
“And this year, especially the league, we have been taking it to a different level and everyone can have their opinions and stuff, but we have been so consistent.”
“We have been doing so well in different parts of our game, whether it is that we have to dig deep and do it in the last couple of minutes of the game or do it comfortably as well and it’s a fantastic feeling and I’m very, very proud that I’m a Premier League winner as well.”
The interview with Van Dijk was interrupted by his team-mates celebrating their performance, with Liverpool already 23 points clear at the top with seven games left.
