Liverpool win over former club, Southampton was pleasing – van Dijk
Former Southampton defender, Virgil van Dijk has admitted that returning with his current team, Liverpool to his former club and getting a 2-0 win in an entirely domineering encounter was really pleasing.
The Netherlands International made a move from the Saints last month in the January transfer window to join Liverpool. He has made positive contributions to his new side and he featured in the entire 90 minutes of the clash at the St Mary’s stadium.
Having quietened the stadium boo-boys with a beautiful display, the 26-year old who had two-and-a-half years left in his contract before deciding to move on in January asserts that it wasn’t difficult for him to focus as it is always a happy moment for him in the Reds colors.
“I enjoyed it a lot. I just focused on the game, I enjoyed being back, I had a lot of good memories and a lot of good things I did here,” he told Sky Sports News.
“Unfortunately, they’re not in a good position right now, but as a Liverpool player, I was very happy with the win. I can’t do anything about the reception, I just did what I could.”
The defender has consistently found it difficult to achieve a clean sheet with the Anfield club since joining in his past four appearances, a feat he finally attained today.
