Liverpool: Fans shocked by Virgil van Dijk and Paulo Maldini comparison - Liverpool

Liverpool’s Virgil van Dijk is arguably the best defender on the planet right now.

The latest Ballon d’Or rankings certainly say as much – the Netherlands international finished second behind Lionel Messi, and it was a close vote too. He has been an important member of Jurgen Klopp’s side over the past two years, and his contribution this term has been vital – with the Reds top of the Premier League by a huge 25 points, he has featured in every single minute of every single game.

He has some way to go to match Paolo Maldini though. The Italian won 126 caps for his country, lifted the European Cup/Champions League five times and won Serie A on seven occasions. Grosvenor Sport, though, clearly believe the two aren’t that much different, and have asked their followers who they would rather have in their prime.

Who is/was better in their prime?
