Virgil Van Dijk has little time for those individuals who want to poke holes in Liverpool’s season after a sticky run of form.
While It is a fact that Liverpool have lost a bit of form losing three of their last four games in all competitions, they still find themselves in a exceptionally strong position in the league and all to play for against Atletico Madrid next Wednesday evening.
Van Dijk wants no part of any negativity that may be in the footballing landscape at this present time.
The Mirror reported The Dutchman as saying:
“In life there are people who are never satisfied.
“They are always looking for negative things. That’s the reality.
“Either you go on with that negative spirit or you just focus on the good things – and I’m definitely focusing on the good things.
“We are in a very good situation
“Close to what we all hope to achieve.
“Let’s just go for it, enjoy it. Let’s focus on ‘just’ the Premier League, because it’s very small, huh?”
Another theory was that Liverpool were not really bothered whether they won or lost against Chelsea.
Again Van Dijk was very strong in his response:
“That’s stupid to say, in my opinion.
“Every competition we play in, we want to win.
“We showed that against Chelsea with the line-up and the way we kept going, the energy we put in.
“We tried to do as much as possible to win the game.”
