Van Dijk, singled out for his match against Atlético

The Atlético de Madrid He was about to give a good scare to the Liverpool, in the clash that both teams played last Tuesday, in the Wanda Metropolitano, on Champions League. The rojiblanco team tied the disadvantage of two goals that had accumulated in just 15 minutes, to completely turn the situation around.

The goals of Griezmann they put the 2-2 and the team of Simeone he had plenty of chances to get ahead on the scoreboard. Of not having mediated the debatable expulsion of the French at the hands of the German Daniel Siebert, The team of Klopp possibly he would have left empty of his visit to the capital of Spain.

The point is that, although the Liverpool won, some individual performances were questioned. For example that of Virgil Van Dijk, who was unable to read the great action of Griezmann at 2-2. The Frenchman controlled the ball to direct it towards the area, with the Dutchman at his side, and launched himself to beat Alisson. It was not the only action in which the usually reliable center-back – one of the best in the world – allowed himself to be beaten.


Tim Sherwood, now a technician, and once a player of the Blackburn rovers who took the Premier in 94/95 and two Cups; or that he played, among many other teams, in the Totteham, was critical of the defense of Liverpool. In words to Premier League Productions I affirm that Virgil van Dijk had his worst game, against him Athletic, since he signed for him Liverpool.

“Possibly the worst game I have ever seen Van Dijk there. They surpassed him ”, said the coach, to add“ all the players, including the defenders, have bad games ”.
