Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk met the media a couple hours ago to preview tomorrow night’s blockbuster UEFA Champions League quarterfinal clash at Manchester City. We have the video embedded here for you via YouTube.
The most expensive player in Liverpool history/priciest defender in world history gave a very information packed session. Van Dijk says his side know how to beat the Citizens.
“They have so much quality, they are going to win the league, we know their strengths, we know their weaknesses,” VVD said.
“We need to be at 100 percent. Defending a 3-0 lead here will be a bit of a strange situation but we need to come with the mindset that it’s 0-0, and we want to win the game and we know we are capable of scoring goals.”
“We know also as a team we can defend well, pretty compact, we saw it in the second half at Anfield but the main thing is we definitely need to keep the mindset of winning the game instead of defending a lead.”
