Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has expressed his view that Virgil van Dijk is a key defender of the old team. The form has dropped because of an injury two years ago that disturbed the mind
. This season, the 31-year-old, in charge of the defensive line for the “Reds”, has made a disappointing performance, collecting only 9 points from six games, is seventh in the table
in 2020. Van Dijk has a serious injury to his knee ligament. Coming from a clash with Jordan Pickford against Everton and missed playing for nine months
, Murphy spoke to UFABET about the impact of the injury.
“His standards dropped, before the injury he seemed to be one of the best centre-backs we’ve ever seen
. and even returning to play without problems But in terms of his mental state, he is not the same.”
“Sometimes he doesn’t want to use his body to fight for the ball, he keeps these things in his mind. and try to protect yourself Without him even realizing it
I think it made him not want to get injured again, you could argue that his way of playing didn’t quite get on, but I think that serious injury still lingered on him. “
Van Dijk set a high standard. And even though he’s dropped, he’s still a great centre-back. Compared to many others.
” It doesn’t help him to play better and Fabinho is not in his best form, but before he had Fabinho, Henderson and Thiago in midfield. and help lighten the burden of the game.”
