Dutchman Virgin Van Dijk has revealed the reasons why he chose to move to Liverpool over other big clubs when he moved to Merseyside for a reported fee of £75 million in January 2018. The former Southampton man had his heart set on moving to Anfield and effectively went on a strike at Saints to facilitate the move. Likes of Manchester City were also interested in his services but Van Dijk has revealed what made him choose Liverpool over other suitors.

Virgin Van Dijk said “Before I made the decision to choose Liverpool, I looked at all the aspects of the clubs; the way of playing, the team-mates, the future as well,” he said. “The city, the fans, everything has got to be a big part of joining a club. I think Liverpool at that time when I made the decision was the right decision and obviously to reach the Champions League final in my first six months was obviously a big bonus and helped me a lot in my development, especially experience-wise.”
