Let’s be honest ever since Liverpool’s dramatic Champions League defeat last Saturday night fans of rival club’s having been revelling in the Merseysiders despair.
Social media has been awash with memes and videos ripping into the Anfield club’s fans, players and of their course their manager Jurgen Klopp’s less then impressive record in major finals.
However, Liverpool’s record signing Virgil van Dijk has gone on the offensive and the Dutchman reckons his sides rivals would have wished they had made last weekend’s final in Kiev.
“Of course we should be proud of ourselves,” Van Dijk told talkSPORT.
“All the teams in England want to be in our position right now.
“They act like they’re happy, but I think they should be jealous.
“We were here, unfortunately we lost, but I think we need to take this to next season and make sure we do even better than we did this year.”
While Liverpool did ultimately fall short of winning Europes most prestigious prize, Jurgen Klopp’s men certainly do have some reasons to be positive as they played some scintillating football to get to the final and broke the record for the most goals scored in a Champions League final.
They also became the first side to ever have three players who scored more than ten Champions League goals in a single season, with Salah, Firmino and Mane all getting into double figure.
