Robertson admits it’s a ‘pleasure’ to play with ‘brilliant’ Van Dijk

Andy Robertson has hailed Liverpool teammate Virgil Van Dijk saying it is a ‘pleasure’ to play alongside the Dutch defender.

Van Dijk has shone in a Liverpool side that has conceded just seven league goals this season, and scored in Friday night’s 2-0 win at Wolves.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are unbeaten in the league this season, leading the title race by four points and Robertson has praised the influence of the 27-year-old at the heart of the defence.

“I’m getting bored speaking about how good he is!” Robertson told liverpoolfc.com.

“No, I’m only joking. He was fantastic. We knew when we saw [Adama] Traore up top that he has got great pace. His pace and direction are a big threat and big Virgil did so well with him. We knew on the counter-attack they were dangerous.

“I’m sure he will be disappointed he has not scored more goals but it was a clean sheet and his first Premier League goal – pretty much a perfect day for him.

“He’s been brilliant [since joining Liverpool]. I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside him for the majority of time on the left-hand side of the defence. He’s just a great lad to have next to you – I’m not sure he will say the same about me!

“I think we have had a good relationship, we work together. The whole back four does, whoever plays, his impact on the club has been good. I look forward to it continuing.”
