Van Dijk predicts Slot’s first season at Liverpool


Liverpool captain, Virgil van Dijk, has said new manager, Arne Slot will “make a big success” at the club.

Slot has been appointed as the Reds’ new boss following Jurgen Klopp’s exit this summer.

Van Dijk has confirmed he had already spoken to his compatriot and that he was eagerly awaiting the next campaign.

“I still have a year left on my contract. I am club captain and I have made it clear I am there for the new coach and enthusiastic over the next season.

“Obviously, there will be a lot of changes but I am confident we will make a big success of it.

“I congratulated him of course and I’m really pleased for him and his family. We spoke about the team and the future, but now my focus is fully on the national team,” Van Dijk said on Monday as the Netherlands began their training camp for the European Championship.
