Van Djik, The Main Man of Liverpool – Hyypia
Former Reds defender Sami Hyypia , consider Van Djik as the main man behind Liverpool’s glory. The fellow centre-half is the main architect behind Liverpool’s strong defence.
Hyypia told to PA Sport :
I saw it right away when he came that he would be a very important part of the team.
Straightaway he was organising the defence, he was the leader at the back, and as time has gone on he is even more important.
He gives confidence to the players and makes many other players play better.
It is very difficult to find a weakness. He is an ultimate centre-back and it would be a pleasure to play alongside him he is so good.
He is so calm on the ball, he never seems in a hurry and he trusts his skills on the ball.
It was the right decision [to sign him] because he is so important for the team, it doesn’t matter how much he cost.
Van Djik has completed his 50 appearance for Liverpool already. But cannot play the next Champions League match due to European ban. Because of this , Kloop’s side will fight against Bayern Munich on Tuesday in the first leg, without Van Djik.
