Emery highlights Van Dijk signing turned around Liverpool
FOOTBALL-Nairobi, Kenya 28 December 17:31 GMT
Unai Emery has recognised Virgil Van Dijk signing as the catalyst to Liverpool’s turnaround in fortunes after struggling for defensive stability.
“I remember three years ago they had a problem in their defensive moments and bought some people – for example Van Dijk – with a good investment and the result is we are looking at them today and their progress,” he was quoted by rte.ie
“They are very strong in defence and also they are improving a lot when they bought Salah and now offensively they are a very big team.
“I think the Premier League is now the best and most important competition in the world for the teams, with Spain, maybe Italy and Germany.
“But I think here are the best teams and players and now the leader in the table is Liverpool – and it is because they are doing things very well.”
