Virgil Van Dijk is set to be named PFA Players’ Player of the Year on Thursday in the wake of beating Raheem Sterling to the honor.
Virgil Van Dijk, who has assumed a key job in the Reds’ title challenge, has beaten Manchester City’s Britain star to the prize, in the wake of awing his friends amid a perfect battle.
The £75 million backman was on a six-man waitlist including Sterling, his Anfield colleague Sadio Mane, Chelsea’s Eden Risk and two greater City players, Sergio Aguero and Bernardo Silva.
Van Dijk has had a gigantic influence in shoring up the Reds’ guard in his first full season at Anfield.
The Holland defender has substantiated himself an inside back keep up, with any semblance of Joe Gomes and Joel Matip pivoting to arrange close by him.
Liverpool have lost only one match this season while having Dutchman at the back, and have yielded minimal measure of objectives in the alliance – 20.
Van Dijk uncovered before in the week that he had voted in favor of his nearest rivalry to win the honor, Residents’ forward Sterling.
Sterling anyway didn’t furnish a proportional payback and rather voted in favor of his Britain worldwide partner Harry Kane.
The Manchester City forward stated: “It’s decent to be perceived on that front yet, frankly, on the off chance that we don’t win the Chief Alliance, I would prefer truly not to be in dispute.
“What I need to do is win the Chief Class, win the FA Glass, at that point think about stuff that way, despite the fact that the honors are before that. Without that, it doesn’t mean a lot to me, truly.
“I voted in favor of Harry Kane. My vote in favor of him is on the grounds that he scores such a large number of objectives consistently, he does as such much for the group, gives such a great amount for his group.
“There was a great deal of discussion about Virgil van Dijk. I realized he would have a great deal of the votes, so I took a gander at somebody I thought being around him in the national group, how he puts in his work, his hard working attitude, what he looks like after himself.
“He’s dependably there, particularly returning from damage, as an expert I took a gander at him and that is my explanation behind voting in favor of him, seeing him on an everyday with the national group.”
