Liverpool: Fans loved Virgil van Dijk’s response to young supporter of Reds’ rivals

Plenty of Liverpool fans on Twitter got a great kick out of a viral video on the social media platform showing Virgil van Dijk speaking with two children.

The clip, which was shared by @TheRedmenTV, shows the Reds defender being quizzed by two youngsters, one supporting Liverpool and the other an Everton fan.

The Liverpool fan asked Van Dijk how happy he was after winning the Champions League, with the 28-year-old replying “I was very happy” and asking if the boy shared those sentiments, which drew a positive reply.

When the other boy said that he wasn’t so happy to see the Reds conquering Europe, Van Dijk asked him if he was an Everton supporter and, upon hearing of the affirmative reply, he quipped: “Tough, isn’t it? Must be very tough.

While Liverpool have started the season with eight consecutive wins in the Premier League to establish an eight-point lead at the top, their crosstown rivals are languishing in the relegation zone after four straight league defeats. [via premierleague.com]
