Former England star can see why Liverpool spent £75m to sign Van Dijk
Jamie Carragher has heaped praise on defender Virgil Van Dijk after the Dutchman’s brilliant performance in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.
The Liverpool great is convinced Van Dijk is worth every penny of the £75m Jurgen Klopp’s side spent on him.
However, following his man of the match display at Selhurst Park on Monday night, Carragher told Sky Sports: "Tonight is the reason why you spend £75m on Virgil van Dijk.
"There were two or three minutes to go and Liverpool give away a free-kick in a dangerous position. He wins the first header and it goes out for a corner. Then the next one comes in and that is where the breakaway comes, and that's the goal."
