This story is completely false!' - Van Dijk denies leading Netherlands squad revolt against Van Gaal return

The Liverpool star has taken exception to a newspaper report singling him out as the aggressor in a campaign to prevent the appointment

Virgil van Dijk has denied leading the Netherlands squad in a revolt against Louis van Gaal's return, labelling the story circulating in the media as "completely false".

Van Gaal has filled that post on two occasions already, and has been touted as the most likely replacement for De Boer, but The Mirror has published an article claiming that Van Dijk is one of several members of the national team rallying to try and prevent the appointment
