'We're very appreciative': Virgil van Dijk delighted Liverpool have Mo Salah

Liverpool take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League this week and Virgil van Dijk has become the latest player to sing the praises of his teammate, Mo Salah.

Salah score a wonder goal at the weekend once again and has been in scintillating form for Liverpool all season. The Egyptian star is now considered one of the world’s very best, and will be hoping to fire Liverpool to more glory this week.

The footballing world has been debating Salah’s greatness recently. Some consider him among the very best, and there’s been calls for the club to sort his new contract ASAP.

But Van Dijk, speaking ahead of this week’s Champions League action, has said that he and his Liverpool teammates are simply happy to have Salah about.

“He is an incredible football player. He has shown that consistently for the last couple of seasons. We are very, very happy that he is in the form he is in. The numbers speak for themselves,” Van Dijk commented.

“It’s everyone’s opinion. We as players know that one week you can be one of the best in the world, and the next put you down. We are just very appreciative of what he is doing. We know the problems he can cause and the difficulties he can give opponents.”

Salah has scored seven Premier League goals in eight games this season, adding another four assists as well.

What is the saying? Real recognises real? Well, that’s the case here with Van Dijk and Salah. Two world-class players who’re at the very top of their game.

The Dutchman has been a standout performer for the Reds in recent times and he was sorely missed last season. You’d imagine it would be a similar scenario if Salah was injured.

But for now, Van Dijk is right. Liverpool fans should simply enjoy and appreciate what Salah brings to the table now.
