Virgil van Dijk has changed things around for Liverpool since joining the club in 2018. A lot of people believed that the Reds spent a lot on the defender. However, the £75 million spent on Van Dijk proved to be their smartest decision.
Van Dijk has since proved to be one of the best defenders in Europe. Not many players have managed to dribble past the big Dutch man. Along with defending, the 28-year-old also has a knack of heading the ball into the net.
Liverpool fans can't get over their star defender. They expect more from him every day. Fans are now demanding Virgil van Dijk to start taking free-kicks after seeing him take some strikes during training. Virgil van Dijk was seen practicing set-pieces with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson during Liverpool's winter break at Melwood. The Dutch stood above his teammates in the practice session. There were several comments by the Liverpool fans asking Virgil van Dijk to take regular free-kicks during matches.
