#PremierLeagueStories – #BrendanRodgers thinks Liverpool would have won the title in 2014 if he had #VirgilVanDijk #LFC

Brendan Rodgers

When recently asked to contribute to a documentary looking back at Liverpool’s 30-year wait to be crowned champions of England, Brendan Rodgers considered his own brush with immortality. Back in 2014, the Reds were within a whisker of claiming the Premier League title under the Northern Irishman, only to stumble with the finishing line in sight and finish second behind Manchester City. Rodgers did admit that he wanted to bring in Virgil Van Dijk at the time but the deal couldn’t be done.

Brendan Rodgers said, “We were great going forward, we were just that bit inconsistent defending, I’ve got no doubt that if we had Virgil van Dijk in our back four at that point we would have won the league. When I was at Liverpool I asked about Van Dijk when he was at Groningen and then at Celtic, But I was told he wouldn’t be for us at the time.”
