Nike and Pro Direct Soccer speak to world-class Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk about his success, his aims and his love for football.
Van Dijk smashed the transfer record and became the world’s most expensive defender back in 2018 when he signed for Liverpool FC for 75 million pounds. He’s then went on to form a vital part of the Liverpool team that won the Champions League this summer. It was the first time that the Reds lifted the trophy in 14 years.
In this interview, we hear about some of Virgil’s biggest moments in football and find out what the sport means to him. We also see some of his most iconic moments re-created in short animations that capture the passion and excitement of his most famous games. Van Dijk also talks about the honour of being a serious contender for the Ballon d’Or, the coveted award given to the best player of the year in world football. Superstars Messi and Ronaldo have dominated the top spot for years and defenders rarely win it, so for Van Dijk to be a favourite to get it this year is a seriously big deal.
