Van Dijk drops hint to Klopp about who he perfect defensive partner is


Virgil van Dijk has seemingly told Jurgen Klopp that Joe Gomez is the perfect player to partner him at centre-back.

The Holland international made the admission during a Twitter Q&A on Tuesday night, in which he answered questions from fans about his life, Liverpool, and his interests.

Van Dijk joined Liverpool from Southampton in 2018 in a transfer worth £75million.

The Dutchman has been a mainstay at centre-back ever since, but has been partnered with a number of players, most notably: Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.

The latter is the man he has spent the most time playing alongside, but he also enjoyed a good spell stood next to Matip when Gomez picked up an injury.

Matthijs de Ligt was talked about prior to his move to Juventus, as the Dutchman plays alongside Van Dijk for the Holland national team.

But it seems Klopp has got it spot on once again by playing Van Dijk with Gomez.
