Liverpool fans have been reacting to Virgil van Dijk’s statement after finishing second in this year’s Ballon d’Or awards.
Barcelona star Lionel Messi pipped the Dutchman to win his sixth Golden Ball in Paris on Monday.
Was Virgil van Dijk robbed at the Ballon d'Or awards?
The Argentina international scored an incredible 51 goals and provided 22 assists in 50 appearances in all competitions during the last campaign, meaning that he was involved in over 70 goals for the Catalan giants.
Van Dijk set an impressive record for a run of 50 games without being dribbled past before it was ended by Arsenal’s Nicolas Pepe.
Here is what the colossal defender had to say about the evening and the last 12 months, as it doesn’t seem like he’s letting this minor setback get him down…
