Virgil van Dijk details long-term Liverpool ambition to become ‘legend’

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has spoken of his desire to be remembered as a Reds "legend" and thinks the sky is the limit for Jurgen Klopp's side.

The 28-year-old joined the club from Southampton for a fee of £75m in 2017, and since then he has developed into arguably the best player in his position in the world.

He helped his team win the Champions League last season, while also finishing runner-up in the Ballon d'Or last year.

Despite his already impressive achievements van Dijk still wants more, and speaking to Spanish publication SPORT the Dutchman was asked how he would like to be remembered.

"As a Liverpool legend," van Dijk replied. "I want to achieve incredible things here.

"We have a fantastic team, we don't lack anything, we have all the tools necessary to go on winning: A coach that we identify with, a versatile squad, a style of play that breeds victories, a stadium and supporters that play their part.

"I would like to be one of those players that return to Anfield after retiring. I see club legends at games and I feel part of a really big family."

It remains to be seen whether van Dijk and his teammates will win Liverpool a first ever Premier League title, with doubts remaining over whether the current campaign will be able to be concluded amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
