Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk insists it is a ‘great time’ to be a Liverpool fan or player after their 1-0 win over Napoli on Tuesday night.
Mohammed Salah’s first-half goal was enough for Jurgen Klopp’s side to secure their place in the Champions League knock-out stages, with Liverpool also top of the Premier League following an unbeaten start to the league season.
“It’s a great time to be a Liverpool fan or player. It’s tough but enjoy it and embrace it – these are the days you want to experience as a footballer and we are,” he said.
“It’s something that we all want, it’s something that we are going to give everything for.
“We want to play on the highest level and the Champions League, other than the Premier League for us, is the highest level.
“We want to reach the maximum and hopefully do better than we did last year in the Champions League. You need to have dreams, you need to go for it, otherwise why would you be a footballer?”
Liverpool’s next game comes on Sunday when they welcome arch rivals Manchester United to Anfield.
