Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk has had a meteoric rise to become one of the best footballers on the planet. FIFA 20 and COPA90 explores his journey to the top in this animation.
Virgil was passionate about football as a kid. He always tried to beat his older brother on the pitch and wanted to be the best player in his neighbourhood. He caught the attention of his local team Breda. They signed him as an academy player, but chose not to give him a pro contract when the time came, due to consistent injuries. Groningen swept in and signed Virgil and he went on to impress in the first team.
He was playing well, but wasn’t hitting his full potential. He made a move to Scottish side Celtic where he made a name for himself, then landed a transfer to Premier League team Southampton. He finally realised his true talent and earned himself a big money move to Liverpool. He became the most expensive defender of all time, going for 75 million pounds. This animation brilliantly captures the player’s fascinating rise up through the sport and shows us all of the hard work and dedication he put in to get there.
